Welcome to the ArcSightActivate web

This web contains the canonical new version of the ArcSight Activate web. If you are writing customer-facing Activate documentation, you have come to the right place. Welcome!

What is ArcSight Activate?

HP's ArcSight Activate is a modular content development methodology and a collection of reusable components designed to quickly deploy and develop actionable use cases. Activate enables you to implement and customize packaged use cases without having to reinvent the wheel. But just as important, it empowers you to develop your own use cases leveraging library of reusable components, standardized deployment tactics, methodology and defined best practices. Via its comprehensive framework and ever growing list of packages, Activate allows new ArcSight implementations to deliver value quickly while providing more mature sites with a methodology for continuous adaptation and improvement.

This wiki contains everything you need to know about Activate:
  • If you are evaluating Activate, see our Why Activate? section for a comprehensive introduction to the benefits Activate provides to both new and mature ArcSight implementations
  • To get started with Activate, see our How to Activate section for guides on both the methodology and complete Framework installation and configuration instructions.
  • To quickly implement various use cases, see our Activate Packages section to see the current list of packages available, each with a full set of installation and configuration instructions and guides to all included ArcSight resources.

Finally, in the left sidebar there is an expandable tree allowing you to quickly navigate to the Activate topic of interest to you. Browse the documentation, install the Framework and implement the packages you need, and you will find yourself with a modular, reusable foundation for all your ArcSight content going forward. Welcome to Activate!

Instructions for Editors

    • The first two main branches (Why Activate, How to Use Activate) are hard-coded in the Web Left Menu Bar.

Creating New Packages

  • We have created templates for new packages and their resources, so that each package looks alike. Please feel free to suggest modifications to these templates, or just to modify them yourself if you see a way to improve them.
  • Because of the use of templates, to create a new package, you should go to the main Packages page and use the text box to create a new Package topic. There are naming instructions on that page.
  • The new page should contain a link to a new Packages Resources child page.
