QRadar: Custom Actions Script cases and support policies

Question & Answer


This article informs administrators about QRadar® Support policies. QRadar Support assists administrators to investigate software errors or defects related to custom actions. This document outlines out-of-scope work for Custom Actions Script cases and the responsibilities of the QRadar administrator. 


Responsibilities for Custom Action Script issues

QRadar® allows administrators to create custom action scripts to rules to perform specific actions in response to network events. Using custom action scripts, administrators can define values from events, which can be passed to the script to implement actions. For example, run a custom action as a rule response that sends data to or queries an external API.
