You can integrate with any third-party application and use the ODBC, CSV, or the Web services connectors to import the required data into CCS.
Before you import external data, you must do the following:
Identify the following attributes in the external data:
A managed object in the system that has value, has an owner, has controlled access, and can have authority. The authority occurs when the asset is a person or a query engine.
A statement that tests a condition for an asset, such as a test if passwords have a certain length.
A status is the outcome or the resultant value of an assessment.
CCS consumes and represents data only in terms of the Asset-Assessment-Status attributes. Hence, before you import external data into CCS, you must map the external data fields to the Asset-Assessment-Status attributes in the CCS schema. You can map the external data fields to the CCS schema from the External Data Integration view.
Correlate the external system data to CCS.
By means of correlation, you basically establish an association between the imported data and the existing CCS assets. Without correlation, you cannot leverage the CCS infrastructure to represent the external data in CCS dashboards and reports. You can correlate the external data fields and the CCS asset fields from the External Data Integration view.
Configure asset risk aggregation.
For risk score calculation, you either use CCS to calculate the risk scores based on the CVSS parameters or use the risk scores that are defined the imported data. You can specify the risk score parameters from the External Data Integration view.
