Enable EDR in CA Configuration Profile

As part of cloud agent installation and setup, enable EDR for the configuration profile and review/update EDR configuration settings.

  1. Toggle Enable EDR module for this profile to ON. This is required for EDR data collection.
  2. Configure what EDR artifacts are transmitted to the Qualys Cloud Platform. Defaults are provided as shown, so this step is optional. You can configure values for max event log size, payload threshold time, and maximum disk usage for EDR data. Toggle a configuration setting to ON before you use it. You must set at least one configuration setting to ON if you have enabled EDR for this profile.

We recommend you set up asset tags for your EDR assets using the Global IT Asset Inventory. This makes it easy to associate EDR assets with a CA configuration profile enabled for EDR.

EDR settings are available only when EDR is enabled for your subscription.
