If you are upgrading from EclecticIQ Intelligence Center 2.x, please request a new license key for your EclecticIQ Intelligence Center 3.x instance. Existing EclecticIQ Intelligence Center 2.x license keys are not compatible with EclecticIQ Intelligence Center 3.0 and newer.
To get a license key for EclecticIQ Intelligence Center 3.0 and newer, please email EclecticIQ’s Customer Success team at email@example.com.
EclecticIQ Intelligence Center 3.0.0 and newer requires one of these supported operating systems:
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8
Rocky Linux 8
If you are using an older operating system such as CentOS 7 or RHEL 7, you must upgrade your operating system to one of the supported operating systems before attempting to install EclecticIQ Intelligence Center 3.0.
Fixes issue where TAXII 2.1 feeds had slow performance that sometimes leading to timeouts and 504 Gateway errors.
Changes are lost if, while creating a new entity, the entity fails to publish
While creating a new entity, if the entity fails to save when selecting Publish, the work-in-progress entity can be lost. To avoid this, select Save draft to save a draft before selecting Publish.
Queries that depend on an ATT&CK ID or name that has changed in v12 may fail
MITRE ATT&CK classifications that have been renamed or relocated (ATT&CK ID has changed) in ATT&CK v12 will no longer be searchable by their older names or ID. Queries (e.g. used in Dynamic Datasets) that depend on an ATT&CK ID or name that has changed in v12 may fail because of this.
TLPs applied to relationship objects are not affected by TLP filters
You can now add TLP colors to relationship objects. However, you cannot use TLP colors with TLP filters yet.
Selecting TLP in entity view to override it does not apply to exports
Edit the entity to change its TLP, or override TLPs at feed level instead.
Certain entities added in 3.0 and newer will cause a STIX 1.2 outgoing feed to fail
Including certain entities in an outgoing feed using the STIX 1.2 content type will cause the feed to fail. Entities affected: Location, Identity, and Malware Analysis.
Certain entities added in 3.0 and newer display an option to export as STIX 1.2, but cannot
Nothing happens when Export > STIX 1.2 is selected for Location, Identity, and Malware Analysis entities. These entity types are not compatible with STIX 1.2 exports.
Exploit Target entities with references can create an invalid STIX 2.1 bundle on export
Exploit Target entities have an optional Vulnerability characteristic where you can set additional information. When an Exploit Target with References set in the Vulnerability characteristic, exporting to STIX 2.1 by default sets the
typeof these references to CVE, which causes an invalid STIX 2.1 bundle to be created if the set references are not valid CVE-IDs.
STIX 2.1 for outgoing feeds: TLP override and filtering has side-effects
See STIX 2.1 Known issues for a list of known issues.
When deleting content of an incoming feed, deleted observables are not included in the count of deleted objects.
Using STIX 2.1 content type to transmit data from one EclecticIQ Intelligence Center instance to another generates duplicates
When using the STIX 2.1 content type to send intelligence from one EclecticIQ Intelligence Center instance (Instance A) to another (Instance B), any updates to entities on Instance A that has already been sent to Instance B will result in duplicate entities being sent to Instance B instead of updating existing entities there.
When upgrading from 2.14 to 3.0, entities with certain fields that contain
nullvalues may cause database migrations to fail
In rare instances when upgrading from EclecticIQ Intelligence Center 2.14 to 3.0, older entities with
nullvalues in certain fields that don’t expect it may cause the database migration to fail, due to stricter validation of entity schemas. If this occurs, do not continue. Save the trace log and contact customer support for assistance to remediate.
Delete observable actions in policies may cause policies to run for excessively long periods of time.
As of 2.12.0, Delete observable actions are skipped by default to allow policies to run more reliably.
Elasticsearch 7 encounters “Data too large” errors: See Elasticsearch 7: “Data too large”.
Systemd splits log lines exceeding 2048 characters into 2 or more lines.
As a result, log lines exceeding 2048 characters become invalid JSON, causing Logstash to be unable to parse them correctly.
When more than 1000 entities are loaded on the graph, you cannot load related entities and observables by selecting Load entities, Load observables, or Load entities by observable from the context menu.
When creating groups in the graph, it is not possible to merge multiple groups into one.
If an ingestion process crashes while ingestion is still ongoing, data may not always sync to Elasticsearch.
Users can leverage rules to access groups that act as data sources, even if those users are not members of the groups they access through rules.
Running multiple outgoing feed tasks may cause the Intelligence Center to consume a large amount of memory over time, because certain outgoing feeds such as HTTP download must load the data into memory in order to make it available to feed consumers.
From EclecticIQ Intelligence Center 2.12.0 onward, the public API is packaged together with EclecticIQ Intelligence Center.
