The goal of this guide is to add a new SkyFormation for CB Defense connector to your SkyFormation Platform.
To add the CB Defense connector to your SkyFormation app, you will need to have the following CB Defense account's information at hand:
- Unique API Key of type “API”
SkyFormation CB Defense connector only requires access level of "API" key type as defined by CB Defense at the link below.
To get the API key the CB Defense admin should follow the guide at:
The CB Defense admin should set up a CB Defense API Connector in CB Defense Dashboard app under the Settings/Connector menu option. Defining a connector will provide the needed API key and the Connector ID needed (see below).
The CB Defense administrator can restrict the use of the created Connector and its API key only to a specific set of IP addresses for better security. We recommend restricting only to the SkyFormation machine address if the API is used only by SkyFormation app.
- Unique Connector ID
To get the Connector ID, follow step 1. and the connector created with its unique ID.
- API Hostname
The connectors and integrations might require an API URL, which is accessible through a special hostname assigned to your organization by Carbon Black for your CB Defense.
To find your organization’s API hostname, please refer to this KB article.
For more information on CB connectors and their URL see:
