Path: Inventory - User Api Setting


Threat Defender can be set up to track the usernames and IP addresses of users who connect to the network.

However, Threat Defender cannot independently detect users connecting to the network. Users can either be created manually in Threat Defender or this information can be transmitted by the network clients or servers. We recommend setting up the servers since this is more efficient, see also the Threat Defender documentation.


Set up Threat Defender to receive user tracking information:

  1. Navigate to Inventory > User Api Setting.
  2. Make sure the slider switch is set to  (enabled).
  3. Specify a Secret Key that servers will use to login in to Threat Defender.
  4. Click SAVE to store the settings.
Tip: Optionally, you can define exceptions that will not be logged.
