Configuring the AlienApp for Zscaler

Role Availability Read-Only Analyst Manager

To configure the AlienApp for Zscaler, you must first have the information listed in the Zscaler documentation, which includes the following:

  • An API subscription
  • An enabled API key
  • An API admin account

To acquire Zscaler configuration details

  1. Log in to the Zscaler admin page using your Zscaler credentials.
  2. Go to Administration > API Key Management.

    The page displays the base Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) and API key.

  3. Copy the base URI and key value to your clipboard or a secure location. You will need to enter them in USM Anywhere to configure the AlienApp.

To connect the Zscaler API to USM Anywhere

  1. In USM Anywhere, go to Data Sources > AlienApps.
  2. Click the Available Apps tab.
  3. Search for the AlienApp, and then click the tile.
  4. Click Configure API.
  5. If you have more than one deployed USM Anywhere Sensor, select the sensor that you want to use for the enabled AlienApp.

    AlienApps operate through a deployed sensor and use APIs to integrate with the connected third-party technology. Select the sensor that can access the integration endpoint. The HTTPS connections to the API will originate from this sensor, so it is important to make sure the sensor has network access to the AlienApp API endpoints.

  6. Enter the information you collected previously:

    • Base URI
    • Username
    • Password
    • Zscaler API Key
  7. Click Save.
  8. Verify the connection.

    After USM Anywhere completes a successful connection to the Zscaler APIs, a icon displays in the Health column.

    If the icon appears, there is a problem with the connection. The Message column provides information about the issue. Repeat the steps to fix the configuration or troubleshoot your Zscaler connection.
