Step 1: Enable console access

This procedure creates a user account for Expel that keeps the Expel activity separate from other activity on the Elastic Endpoint Security console.

Create an admin account

  1. Navigate to Administration icon on the left, click Users tab, and click Create New User.

    • For Last name type Admin.

    • For Username type Expel.

    • For User Role select Admin.


      LEVEL 3 access can be selected here although Expel can't view security policies for the device to advise on best practices and configuration. Detection remains unaffected.

    • Create a Password for Expel.

  3. Click Create User.


After console access is established for Workbench, the remaining onboarding steps for this technology can also be performed by Expel. Reach out to your engagement manager if you want us to help.

Step 2: Configure the technology in Workbench

  1. In a new browser tab, log into https://workbench.expel.io.

  2. On the console page, navigate to Settings and click Security Devices.

  3. At the upper right of the page, select Add Security Device.

  4. Search for and select Endgame.

    • Select the assembler from the list. (On-prem only)

    • For Name, type the host name of the Elastic Endpoint Security device.

    • For Location, type the geographic location of the appliance.

    • For Username, type Expel from Step 1.

    • For Password, type the password used in Step 1.

    • For Server address, type the management/console IP address of the device to be connected through https. For example:

    • For File unzip password, type the password to unzip the acquired file. If you don't type a password here, the default Endgame password is used.

    • For Acknowledge alerts, select yes to mark Endgame alerts as “viewed” after Workbench processes them.

    • For Dismiss alerts, select yes to mark Endgame alerts as "dismissed" when Workbench processes them.

  6. You can provide console access now or set it up later. Use the instructions below to set it up later.
