No not yet.  For now the easiest thing to do is install the wiki and follow the user or developer track image map on the web home page.

Good idea, and we'll see what we can do about a webinar/video series.

Yes, it is located in the ArcSight Activate Framework place in the overview section.  If you ever need to find it again or this link is broken check the screen shot below.   For now you can go directly here.

How about a pdf manual?

We're working on a portable HTML version of the wiki but I don't have an ETA for that.  Its going to be delivered through the community working through me.

We had initially tried the PDF methodology but it simply doesn't work.  The wiki is designed to help walk you through all the required steps. See below for an example from the Perimeter solution:

  1. collect the raw materials from the end device,
  2. process and correct them efficiently,
  3. install the content
  4. Test/compare your event stream
  5. work through event management

Considering we have customers with differing products, the PDF would simply grow uncontrollably...  I think the static HTML pages will resolve the major problem caused by the wiki installation.  Thoughts?

I understand and did take a quick try at installing the Wiki on one of my test boxes, but that failed. I will try again. Really would love this to be easier. We are going to be rolling out 6.8 very soon and certainly want to explore Activate.

Easy is our goal, we certainly don't want to scare people away.  I also don't want to hold on to this while we perfect it.

Either way... One of our all-stars put together this guide to help everyone out.  I'm sure you'll be impressed and up and running in no time.

Thanks John,

I will try again as my job as an IT security guy affords me plenty of spare time.   Seriously, those were the instructions that I followed, but certainlly I will try again, hopefully sometime soon.

Portable HTML would be great.

Ok,

So I'm following directions exactly-get to the step Install makecache and get this:

HI Allen, I'm really sorry to hear you are running into these issues. 

I tried pulling the file down with firefox and my test system has the same settings. in CentOS-Base.repo

Maybe you can try with wget for a better transport error. Do you have this running through a network with a proxy?

Hey John,

My internet goes through a Bluecoat box.

I’ll try again today.
