Deploying changes

Changes that are made to the IBM® QRadar® deployment must be pushed from the staging area to the production area.


  1. On the navigation menu ( Navigation menu icon ), click Admin.
  2. Check the deployment banner to determine whether changes must be deployed.
  3. Click View Details to view information about the undeployed configuration changes.
  4. Choose the deployment method:
    1. To deploy changes and restart only the affected services, click Deploy Changes on the deployment banner.
    2. To rebuild the configuration files and restart all services on each managed host, click Advanced > Deploy Full Configuration.
      Note: QRadar continues to collect events when you deploy the full configuration. When the event collection service must restart, QRadar does not restart it automatically. A message displays that gives you the option to cancel the deployment and restart the service at a more convenient time.
