Install the Windows App

The Library allows an Admin to install the Windows App. Your organization will be up and running with the app in just a few minutes.


To install the app:

  1. In the Library, click the Apps tab. 
  2. Click Windows.
  3. Click Install

  4. Select from _sourceCategory values. Choose an existing 
    _sourceCategory present in your account that is associated with logs from remote Windows Event Log sources.
    Important: If you do not select the correct _sourceCategory, data will not be loaded into the app. 
  5. Click Install.
  6. When the Confirm dialog displays, click Go to navigate to the installed app.

After the Install

Once an app is installed, it will appear in your Personal folder. From here, you can publish it to share it with your organization.

Panels will start and fill automatically. It's important to note that each Panel slowly fills with data matching the time range query and received since the Panel was created. Results won't immediately be available, but with a bit of time, you'll see full graphs and maps.
