Aegis Adapter for Sentinel Version 1.0 Release Notes

April 2016

The Aegis Adapter for Sentinel (Sentinel adapter) allows Aegis to communicate with Sentinel to:

The Sentinel adapter also includes Aegis workflow activities specific to Sentinel that Process Authors can use in the Workflow Designer to:

  • Retrieve the attributes for specific alerts

  • Retrieve the events related to a specific alert

  • Query the knowledge base and retrieve comments

  • Create, update, or close an alert

  • Add comments to an alert

  • Promote an alert to an incident
