Creating Security Labels

Article Summary


Security Labels are a powerful way to label, track, and limit information shared across data owners in ThreatConnect®. They are customizable on the System, Organization, and Community and Source level. This article covers creating Organization-wide Security Labels. See ThreatConnect System Administration Guide for information on creating System-wide Security Labels and ThreatConnect Community and Source Administration Guide for information on creating Security Labels in a Community or Source.

If you have two versions of the same Group—one in your Organization and the other in a Community or Source—and each version has a different Security Label applied to it, then when you contribute the Group in your Organization into the existing Group in the Community or Source, the Security Label will be appended into the contribute operation, and both Security Labels will be applied to the Group in the Community or Source.
