How do I manually install Splunk ES threat lists ?

Builder

All,

Anyone have a walk through on how I might install various threatlists to Splunk ES in a search head configuration? I can assume I just download the files to the search head deployer, just not sure where in the path I place them.

thanks

I haven't done much with ES, and even less with ES+SHC, but I'm curious if this doc is some of what you're looking for (there is a Cloud only marker on this version though... I wonder how much has changed):

Hello @daniel333,

You're correct that you'd want to download the files (upload them, if adding a STIX/IOC file manually) to the deployer and then deploy them out. Treat it like a lookup file.

The link that @acharlieh posted has the correct file path in it for that version and the previous one.

If you go to the version of the documentation it will tell you if there is a specific path required. I believe in 4.5.0 is when we started requiring a specific file path.

In the next version of ES (and the current cloud-only version) this is easier because you can upload the file and the software takes care of the rest, without worrying about a file system location.

Let me know how that goes! I'm going to add a SHC-specific note to the documentation to make this clearer, thanks for your question!!
