Installing QRadar Use Case Manager

Use the IBM® QRadar® Extensions Management tool or the IBM QRadar Assistant app to install the IBM QRadar Use Case Manager app on your QRadar Console.

Before you begin

Before you install the QRadar Use Case Manager app, ensure that it meets the minimum memory (RAM) requirements. QRadar Use Case Manager requires 500 MB of free memory from the application pool of memory. If QRadar Use Case Manager fails to install, then your application pool does not have enough free memory to run the app. Consider adding an App Host to your QRadar deployment. For more information about calculating the required memory, see Apps and Resource Limitation (

QRadar 7.4.0 or later uses an App Host, which is a managed host, that is dedicated to running apps. App Hosts provide extra storage, memory, and CPU resources for your apps without impacting the processing capacity of your QRadar Console. For more information, see
