Course 9010

The objectives of this class will be to first, write and modify Collector plug ins using the Sentinel SDK in an Eclipse environment and second is to write new and modify existing reports found in Sentinel SEIM and Sentinel RD. Sentinel Collector plug-ins are used to process incoming data from event and data sources, and to transform that data into data objects usable by Sentinel. This class will take the user through a series of exercises designed to teach the APIs and concepts necessary to accomplish these tasks. Sentinel also provides a comprehensive embedded reporting engine based on Jasper. The type of data available for reporting varies by platform, with Sentinel Log Manager primarily focusing on event data only, and Sentinel SIEM providing additional contextual data such as asset and identity information. Using the same set of APIs, this class will use two methods for writing new reports; Eclispe and ANT to compile Javascript into reports and also using the new reporting tool introduced with Identity Manager 4. Pre-requisite: This class requires knowledge of Jasascript and previous experience with Sentinel. Experience with Eclispe will be an advantage.


The audience for this course includes partners, employees and companies needing to modify the parsing logic of the Sentinel connector. Other attendees may want this class to modify the content of a report or create new reports not included with the Sentinel product they own. Others may just be curious as to the inner workings of the Sentinel publish channel.


The prerequisites for this course include a course in Sentinel Classic, Sentinel Rapid Deployment or Sentinel Log Manager or an equivalent understanding of the Sentinel Event Source Management system. These include developers or other network personnel with an advanced understanding of the Sentinel structure. This class also requires an understanding of Eclipse as well as Javascript. Concepts of ESM, Eclipse, and Javascript will not be taught in class; attendees are expected to know these environments before they attend.
