ArcSight Connector

Intro

HP ArcSight is a cyber security company that provides big data security analytics and intelligence software for security information and event management (SIEM) and log management solutions. You can use Domo’s ArcSight connector to pull Report Service and Query Viewer service reports. To learn more about ArcSight, visit their page (http://www8.hp.com/us/en/software-so...ent/index.html).

You connect to your ArcSight account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the ArcSight connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Prerequisites

To connect to your ArcSight account and create a DataSet, you must have the following:

  • The username and password for your ArcSight account

  • The hostname and port number for your ArcSight server

  • The report ID if you are retrieving a Report Service report, or the query ID if you are retrieving a Query Viewer Service report

Connecting to Your ArcSight Account

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the ArcSight Connector page. The components of the other panes in this page, Scheduling and Name & Describe Your DataSet, are universal across most connector types and are discussed in greater length in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Credentials Pane

This pane contains fields for entering credentials to connect to your ArcSight account. The following table describes what is needed for each field:

Username Enter the username you use to log into your ArcSight account.
Password Enter the password you use to log into your ArcSight account.

Once you have entered valid ArcSight credentials, you can use the same account any time you go to create a new ArcSight DataSet. You can manage connector accounts in the Accounts tab in the Data Center. For more information about this tab, see Managing User Accounts for Connectors.
