ES Choreographer

Splunk Cloud
Overview
Details
Tools to ease the maintenance of correlation searches:
* user-friendly peer review and change tracking system for correlation searches
* simple in-splunk task management system
* framework to encourage compliance with best practices
* morning checks checks stub

Demonstrated in SEC1441A at .conf21: "How We Maintain Our Correlations in Splunk Enterprise Security at Thales UK"

Installation

Install GV-Utils on your ES search head(s).

(Optionally) install the Lookup Editor app on the same search head(s).

Install SA-ES-Choreographer, again on the same search head(s).

Navigate to the app and choose "initial setup" in the menu. Click "do full setup" and let it run its searches. This populates lookups that are otherwise maintained by various scheduled searches.

Go the the status dashboard, click on the question mark ? to expand the sliding drawer and click to open the bulk review tool. Tick disabled (as well as enabled) and pass the review. This is setting the first version of all your correlations, including the currently disabled ones.

Optionally: you might want to specify your search head(s) in the ESC_ES_search_heads macro: settings > advanced search > macros > edit ESC_ES_search_heads. It is used to narrow down some searches with host=`ESC_ES_search_heads` so use a pattern that will work in this context.

To get the most from the app, some functionality needs to be customised to your team, your deployment and your desires. This is optional but unfortunately requires editing the source of some dashboards. Please refer to the documentation.

Quick start

If you're curious to see the peer review / change tracking in action:
- go to ES's content management
- modify a correlation search (enable/disable, change the schedule and/or the SPL, etc)
- go back to the status dashboard in ES choreographer and set it for peer review by clicking the corresponding button
- click "quick correlation data refresh" - your search should appear as pending review
- click the "pending" - the diff should show your changes

From there, test the task management system:
- click the TODO/Done navigation button to go to the TODO page for that correlation.
- use the form to add a TODO
- navigate back to the status dashboard and refresh it. Maybe set it for TODOs. Your TODO should appear in the list.

Navigate to the Best Practices dashboard:
- click on a line in the main table
- scroll down and click on the question marks ? to slide out more documentation about what the dashboard is doing.

The morning checks checks dashboard is there as a stub for your own checks.
