How to prevent IOCs and Incident Cases from being created when running playbooks

L1 Bithead

Hi,

 

I was making 2 playbooks.

In the first playbook, after creating the same I scheduled it as a job. Each time the job runs, it creates a incident case. How do I prevent the incident case from being created when the job runs?

 

In the second playbook, I was creating playbook which pulls MISP feeds which I want to send to another solution. Since it is pulling feeds containing IOCs, it is creating indicators in the Threat Intel section. I do not want the IOCs from the feeds to be added to the Threat Intel section. I just want to pull the IOCs from the feeds and send the same to the external solution. How can I do this?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi @pottapitot, every job run creates a new incident. This cannot be stopped. There might be other work arounds available. You could looks at using a scheduled command to run the !setPlaybook command every X minutes. This would mimic the job run but consume a single incident ID. 

 

Regarding your second question, indicator extraction is enabled by default on XSOAR. As a part of best practises we recommend disabling it. You should disable it at a platform level and allow extraction on a specific task or command level. For more information refer - https://docs.paloaltonetworks.com/cortex/cortex-xsoar/6-8/cortex-xsoar-admin/manage-indicators/auto-...

 

To disable it I would recommend adding the below server configs with the value set to 1 (Refer above link for possible values):-

 - reputation.calc.algorithm

 - reputation.calc.algorithm.fields.change

 - reputation.calc.algorithm.tasks

 - reputation.calc.algorithm.manual

 

You can then override the above by forcing extraction:-

1. At CLI - Add auto-extract= to the end of a command

2. At Task - Edit Task -> Advanced -> Indicator Extraction Mode - Refer

3. At Field\Incident - Settings -> Object Setup -> Incidents -> Type -> <Incident Type> -> Indicator Extraction Rules - Refer
