Content Packs Overview

  • Dark

Article Summary


A Content Pack is a bundle of Applications, Artifact types, Attribute Types, Playbooks, and/or Workflows that provides you with all of the tools you need to enable a particular use case in ThreatConnect®. Content Packs save you from the work of having to create and put all of the building blocks of your use case together yourself. They are a ready-made, out-of-the-box solution that enables you to start triaging, analyzing, and acting right away.

ThreatConnect has a growing library of Content Packs available in TC Exchange™. System Administrators can import Content Packs from TC Exchange and then install them on their ThreatConnect instance. You can also create your own Content Packs using an internal API endpoint and have your System Administrator install them on your ThreatConnect instance using the corresponding .tcxp file. If your System Administrator has access to ThreatConnect Cloud, they can also publish Content Packs to the TC Exchange catalog for easy distribution to the broader ThreatConnect customer base.

Before You Start

Minimum Role(s)
  • Organization role of Organization Administrator (for generating a bearer token to use when creating Content Packs via the internal Content Pack API endpoint)
  • System role of Administrator (for installing Content Packs)
  • System role of Administrator on ThreatConnect Cloud (for publishing Content Packs to the TC Exchange catalog)

  • The Playbooks and Workflows you want to add to the Content Pack are created in your Organization
