Adding a Safelist Library

To create a new Safelist Library, follow this procedure:

  1. On the Transformations window of the Intel Workflow, click Add Safelist Library. This opens the Add Safelist Library window.
  2. Enter a name in the Safelist Library Name text field.
  3. Click Add Items on the right side of the window. This opens the Add Safelist Items window.
  4. In the left side text field, enter the values you want to add to the library. You can paste or type in a comma-separated string (no spaces). To add an IP range, use a network mask (for example: 123.54.21.13/24)
  5. When you finish entering items, click Analyze below the text box. This displays a list on the right side of the window of all the Observables extracted from your entries . You can sort items by Observable type
  6. Check the items you want to add to the Safelist and then click Add Safelist Items. This returns you to the Add Safelist Library window.
To select all the items in the list, click the checkbox at the top of the list.
  1. Click Add Safelist Library to create the new library with the items you have selected.
We recommend around 5,000 items as a limit per Safelist Library
