The Live Configuration panel has three sections: Live Account, Live Content, and Additional Live Services.
Live Account SectionLive Account Section
In the Live Account section, you must enter the Live credentials. The information needed to set up the user’s Live account consists of the Username, Password, and Live URL for the NetWitness Content Management System. This information is provided by Customer Care.
The following table describes the Live Account section features.
The Live URL for the Content Management System. The default value points to the NetWitness CMS at cms.netwitness.com.
The communications port for Live to send requests to the Content Management System. The default value for this field is 443, which is the communications port on the Content Management System.
Allows the user to communicate via SSL.
The Live account user name as provided by NetWitness Customer Support.
The Live account user password as provided by NetWitness Customer Support.
Tests if the connection is successful or not.
Saves and applies the configuration.
The Live Account section provides an option to download and share the Live Feedback historical data by clicking Live Feedback Activity Log.

Live Content SectionLive Content Section
You can configure the Live Content Synchronization interval and notification at which NetWitness checks for new updates to Live Content:
Use the Check for New Updates field to change the interval. Select an interval from the drop-down list. The default value for this setting is once a day.
The following table describes the Live Content features.
|Check for new updates||
This setting dictates how often NetWitness checks for new updates to Live Subscriptions and synchronizes subscribed resources and tags:
The default value for this setting is once a day.
|Next Check||Displays the time and date of the next scheduled Live synchronization based on the configured interval for checking.|
Email addresses specified here receive messages containing a list of subscribed resources that have been updated in the last 24 hours.
Specifies the format of email messages.
Instead of waiting for the next scheduled resource cycle, this option forces Live to begin immediate synchronization of the subscribed resources in this instance of NetWitness.
Caution: Use this feature with caution because synchronization can cause a parser reload if a Lua Parser or Flex Parser is deployed in the update cycle. This is acceptable once or twice a day, but a number of back-to-back parser reloads can cause packet loss at the Decoder. If this is the initial setup and you haven’t configured Live resource subscriptions, do not Synchronize Now. Wait until you have configured subscriptions.
|Apply||Applies the changed configuration to the subscription synchronization behavior. The changes become effective immediately. The Next Live synchronization is scheduled for field is updated if the time changed.|
Force Immediate SynchronizationForce Immediate Synchronization
To force immediate synchronization, click Check Now. NetWitness checks for updates in subscribed resources.
Instead of waiting for the next scheduled resource cycle, this option forces Live to begin immediate synchronization of the subscribed resources in this instance of NetWitness. One use for this is to see the immediate impact of a configuration change. For example, a new service has been added, or new resources have been toggled for automatic deployment. The scheduled synchronization could take place hours later if Live Services is set to synchronize a few times a day.
Caution: Synchronization can cause a parser reload if a Flex Parser is deployed in the update cycle. This is acceptable once or twice a day, but a number of back-to-back parser reloads can cause packet loss at the Decoder. If this is the initial setup and you haven’t configured Live resource subscriptions, do not Synchronize Now. Wait until you have configured subscriptions.
