Configuring Netskope Connectors

This connector allows Stellar Cyber to collect data from external sources and add the records to the data lake.

Netskope integration with Stellar Cyber enables organizations to monitor and protect their cloud environment, providing real-time threat intelligence and automated response workflows to improve incident response and threat mitigation.

There can be any number of Netskope connectors active.

Adding a Netskope Connector

To add a Netskope connector:

  1. Obtain your Netskope credentials
  2. Add the connector in Stellar Cyber
  3. Test the connector
  4. Verify ingestion

Obtaining your Netskope Credentials

Before you configure the connector in Stellar Cyber, you must obtain an API token from Netskope.

  1. Log in as an administrative user to the Netskope Admin Console, for example:

  2. Choose Settings.

  3. Choose Tools.

  4. Choose REST API v2 to get an API token for all the available content types. (Or, you can choose REST API v1 to get an API token for the Alert and Event content types only.) Then choose NEW TOKEN.

    To select the Netskope API version that you want the connector to use, refer to the following information as a guide for selecting your Netskope endpoints. This selection must correspond to the version associated with the API token:

    V1: For this version, the following endpoints are supported:

    • /api/v2/events/data/alert (supports data types: policy, dlp, watchlist)

    • / api/v2/events/data/application (supports data type: application)

    V2: For this version, the following endpoints are supported:

    • /api/v2/events/data/alert (supports data types: policy, dlp, watchlist)

    • / api/v2/events/data/application (supports data type: application)

  5. Select the privilege for the endpoints you want to select. At a minimum, select Read.

    For example, for REST API v1 or REST API v2:

  6. Click Save.

Adding the Connector in Stellar Cyber

With the configuration information handy, you can add the Netskope connector in Stellar Cyber:

  1. Log in to Stellar Cyber.

  2. Click System | Integration | Connectors. The Connector Overview appears.

  3. Click Create. The General tab of the Add Connector screen appears. The information on this tab cannot be changed after you add the connector.

  4. Choose Web Security from the Category drop-down.

  5. Choose Netskope from the Type drop-down.

  6. For this connector, the supported Function is Collect, which is enabled already.

  7. Enter a Name. This field is required, and does not accept multibyte characters.

  8. Choose a Tenant Name.

    This field does not accept multibyte characters.

  9. Choose the device on which to run the connector.

    • Certain connectors can be run on either a Sensor or a Data Processor. The available devices are displayed in the Run On menu. If you want to associate your collector with a sensor, you must have configured that sensor prior to configuring the connector or you will not be able to select it during initial configuration. If you select Data Processor, you will need to associate the connector with a Data Analyzer profile as a separate step. That step is not required for a sensor, which is configured with only one possible profile.

    • If the device you're connecting to is on premises, we recommend you run on the local sensor. If you're connecting to a cloud service, we recommend you run on the DP.

  10. (Optional) When the Function is Collect, you can create Log Filters. For information, see Managing Log Filters.

  11. Click Next. The Configuration tab appears.

  12. Select the Netskope API Version that you want the connector to use.

    If the selected API Version is V1 or V2, the Configuration tab is as follows:

  13. Choose the Content Type you would like to collect. For V1, the logs for Alert and Event are supported. For V2, the logs for Alert, Event are supported.

  14. Enter the Netskope Tenant Name, for example, companya.

    Do not enter a full URL, for example,

  15. Enter the API Key you noted above in Obtaining your Netskope Credentials.

  16. Choose the Interval (min). This is how often the logs are collected. The default interval is 5 minutes.

  17. Choose the Interval (min). This is how often the logs are collected.

  18. Click Next. The final confirmation tab appears.

  19. Click Submit.

    To pull data, a connector must be added to a Data Analyzer profile if it is running on the Data Processor.

  20. If you are adding rather than editing a connector with the Collect function enabled and you specified for it to run on a Data Processor, a dialog box now prompts you to add the connector to the default Data Analyzer profile. Click Cancel to leave it out of the default profile or click OK to add it to the default profile.

    • This prompt only occurs during the initial create connector process when Collect is enabled.

    • Certain connectors can be run on either a Sensor or a Data Processor, and some are best run on one versus the other. In any case, when the connector is run on a Data Processor, that connector must be included in a Data Analyzer profile. If you leave it out of the default profile, you must add it to another profile. You need the Administrator Root scope to add the connector to the Data Analyzer profile. If you do not have privileges to configure Data Analyzer profiles, a dialog displays recommending you ask your administrator to add it for you.

    • The first time you add a Collect connector to a profile, it pulls data immediately and then not again until the scheduled interval has elapsed. If the connector configuration dialog did not offer an option to set a specific interval, it is run every five minutes. Exceptions to this default interval are the Proofpoint on Demand (pulls data every 1 hour) and Azure Event Hub (continuously pulls data) connectors. The intervals for each connector are listed in the Connector Types & Functions topic.

    The Connector Overview appears.

The new connector is immediately active.

Testing the Connector

When you add (or edit) a connector, we recommend that you run a test to validate the connectivity parameters you entered. (The test validates only the authentication / connectivity; it does not validate data flow).

  1. Click System | Integrations | Connectors. The Connector Overview appears.

  2. Locate the connector that you added, or modified, or that you want to test.

  3. Click Test at the right side of that row. The test runs immediately.

    Note that you may run only one test at a time.

Stellar Cyber conducts a basic connectivity test for the connector and reports a success or failure result. A successful test indicates that you entered all of the connector information correctly.

To aid troubleshooting your connector, the dialog remains open until you explicitly close it by using the X button. If the test fails, you can select the  button from the same row to review and correct issues.

The connector status is updated every five (5) minutes. A successful test clears the connector status, but if issues persist, the status reverts to failed after a minute.

Repeat the test as needed.

Verifying Ingestion

To verify ingestion:

  1. Click Investigate | Threat Hunting. The Interflow Search tab appears.
  2. Change the Indices to Syslog. The table immediately updates to show ingested Interflow records.
