Forescout Adaptive Response Add-on unable to retrieve alert actions from CounterAct

Path Finder


I have the Forescout Technology Add-on and the Forescout Adaptive Response Add-on installed on my ES SH.

The integration is working fine in respect to retrieving events from Forescout, however I am having a problem with the Adaptive Response Add-on. I installed the Add-on but when i restart the ES SH it gives an error message (screen shot attached). When i go into /opt/splunk/var/log/splunk and check the log file TA-forescout_response_init.log, it shows ...

There is no problem with regards access to my CounterAct server (on-prem) as I verified that the HTTPS connection can be made.

Has anybody have any experience with this add-on or this error, as Im kind of lost and there is very little from Forescout on this?
