Feature set#

This document lists the features provided by TheHive in either the UI or APIs and Webhooks.

TheHive comes with the native support of integrating:

  • one or more Cortex instances
  • one or more MISP instances


TheHive supports multiple authentication methods:

  • Local authentication using a local user collection
  • AD authentication
  • LDAP authentication
  • SSO authentication
  • X.509 certificates authentication

Case Management#

  • List and filter cases
  • Create new cases from scratch or using case templates
  • Add custom fields to cases
  • Add metrics to cases
  • Find linked cases to a given case based shared observables
  • Add tasks and task groups to cases
  • Assign tasks to a given user
  • Add logs to tasks, including attachment to task logs
  • Add observables to a case
  • Execute Cortex responders against
  • cases
  • tasks
  • task logs
  • Delete cases by administrators only

Alert Management#

Alerts are a sort of incident not yet qualified as a Case. The Alerts sections allows:

  • Listing and searching for alerts
  • Marking alerts as read
  • Ignoring alert updates
  • Previewing alert details
  • Display alert details and editable custom fields
  • Display alerts observables
  • Display similar cases
  • Importing an alert as an emtpty case or using a case template
  • Merging an alert into an existing case

MISP Integration#

MISP is natively integrated to TheHive allowing:

  • The declaration of one or more MISP instances
  • Each instance can be used to Import and/or Export events from MISP or cases to MISP
  • Imported MISP events are made available as Alerts
  • Imporing is configurable using filters (configuration files)


  • Feeders are external tools designed to send alerts to TheHive leveraging the REST APIs Thehive offers
  • Feeders can be written and any programming language as long as it is compatible with TheHive APIs
  • Feeders can be written in Python and use TheHive4Py

Search capabilities#

The search section provided by TheHive allows searching for the following objects using dynamic forms:

  • cases
  • tasks
  • observables
  • logs
  • alerts


The dashboards section allows:

  • creating private dashboards per user
  • creating shared dashboads visible by all users
  • adding widgets to dashboards using a drag & drop capabilities
  • creating widgets that target cases, tasks, observables, alerts, jobs
  • configuring widgets in a granular manner


Case templates#

  • Create case templates
  • Add tasks to templates
  • Add metrics to templates
  • Add custom fields to templates
  • Define default values for custom fields, metrics and tasks
  • Export case template definitions
  • Import case template definitions


  • List and Create metrics

Custom fields#

  • Create custom fields
  • Update custom fields


  • List users
  • Create/Edit users
  • Set a user password
  • Set a user API key
  • Revoke a user's API key
  • Lock a user

Analyzer report templates#

Report templates are used to display the raw reports from Cortex in a text format. This section allows:

  • Importing short and long reports
  • Customize short and long reports for each analyzer

Cortex integration#

TheHive uses Cortex to have access to analyzers and responsders

  • Analyzers can be launched against observables to get more details about a given observable
  • Responders can be launched against case, tasks, observables, logs, and alerts to execute an action
  • One or more Cortex instances can be connected to TheHive

Database migration#

TheHive provides a mechanism to upgrade the Elasticsearch database by copying the index and making transformations on it.
