Orchestration Rules

Role Availability Read-Only Analyst   Manager

USM Anywhere enables you to create and manage your own orchestration rules. Keep in mind that these rules verify whether they match with every new event Any traffic or data exchange detected by AT&T Cybersecurity products through a sensor, or through external devices such as a firewall. coming into the system.

Warning: Orchestration rules only apply to future events and alarms. There is no longer an exception for suppression rules.

Suppression rules using the Contains, Match and Match, case insensitive operators apply to future events and alarms, not to events and alarms received in the current day.

USM Anywhere includes these orchestration rules:

Note: USM Anywhere follows a specific order for applying orchestration rules. See Orchestration Rules Workflow for more information.

The order of the conditions is significant because USM Anywhere follows a specific order when it evaluates the rule conditions, reading them from left to right. If your rule includes the packet_type and plugin_device fields, these should always occur first in the order.

You can also create orchestration rules from the details of an event or alarm. The functionality works the same way and the dialog box is similar when you are creating a rule either from a detail page of an event or alarm or from the settings page.

Important: The easiest way to configure an orchestration rule is from the Alarm and the Events details pages. See Creating Notification Rules from the Alarms Page, Creating Alarm Rules from the Events Page, and Creating Notification Rules from the Events Page for more information.

See Example: Creating an Orchestration Rule if you want to see an example of an orchestration rule.
