Configuring asset identification

You can add reference sets to your QRadar® Advisor with Watson™ app and then assign weights to each set to better define high value assets.

Before you begin

You must have QRadar administrator privileges to configure asset identification.

About this task

The QRadar Advisor with Watson app can determine which assets contain IP addresses and are defined in reference sets. Assets that are found in both the Asset Profile database and reference sets default to use the maximum weight from either definition.

To configure asset identification, assets must be in a QRadar reference set and the reference set type must be "IP". If the type changes or the reference set is deleted, then that reference set will not be available when you add reference sets on the Asset Identification page.


  1. On the navigation menu ( Navigation menu icon ), click Admin.
