This article explains how to connect DEVO to Workbench.

Step 1: Enable console access

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

Note

Expel secures all login information our SOC analysts need about your devices in an MFA password product. Access to this login information is protected using our internal MFA processes. To learn more about the IP addresses all Expel traffic comes from, go here.

  1. Navigate to Administration > Users > and click ADD USER at the upper right of the page.

  2. For E-mail type: soc+<Your_Organization_Name>@expel.io.

    Tip

    Yes, the "+" sign is part of the email address, and it's important. Click here to find out why.

  3. For Username type soc@expel.io.

  4. For Role select Administrator.

Step 2: Enable API Access for Expel

This procedure creates an authentication token that allows access to the DEVO API.

  1. Navigate to Administration > Credentials and click CREATE NEW API KEY at the upper right of the page.

  2. Make note of the newly generated API Key and API Secret.

Step 3: Configure DEVO in Workbench

  1. In a new browser tab, login to https://workbench.expel.io.

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

  3. At the top right of the page, click Add Security Device.

  4. Search for and select DEVO.
