Configuring the Cyber Adversary Framework Mapping Application
You must create an authorized service token to authenticate the background services that the app uses to request data from your local instance of IBM® QRadar®.
With 2.6.0, the QRadar Use Case Manager is installed with QRadar Advisor with Watson™ and the QRadar Use Case Manager version is updated to 2.3.1. The QRadar Use Case Manager includes MITRE ATT&CK mapping and visualization. You should follow the instructions for the QRadar Use Case Manager. For more information, see QRadar Use Case Manager.
Before you begin
Attention: If you are using QRadar Advisor with Watson 2.5.3 or earlier, then you can use the Cyber Adversary Framework Mapping Application app that is included with QRadar Advisor with Watson. Do not use both the QRadar Use Case Manager and the Cyber Adversary Framework Mapping Application at the same time or you will encounter out of sync issues.
You must have QRadar administrator privileges to create authorized service tokens.
The following instructions apply to the Cyber Adversary Framework Mapping Application and not the QRadar Use Case Manager.
