Get started with the Tanium Endpoint Platform integration

The Integration Configuration feature allows you to quickly activate and set up third-party security integrations, including Tanium integration. Before you can use the Tanium integration, activate the plugin and configure the integration. If necessary, you must also update your X509 SSL certification.

Before you begin

Role required: sn_si_admin
Note: This procedure can be used to activate the plugin and configure the integration. You can also activate the plugin using the traditional method.

About this task

Whenever a CI is added to an open security incident in Security Incident Response, the Tanium - Get running processes workflow is triggered when the record is saved. Tanium is asked a Get Processes question, and Tanium returns the running processes for the affected CI in a table. For more information on the workflow and associated workflow activities, see Tanium - Get Running Processes workflow.
