How do I update my Panther alert statuses or assignees in bulk?


How do I update my Panther alerts in bulk? For example, if I have a large number of false positives, how do I resolve of those alerts?


Option 1: Panther API

You can do this programmatically via the Panther API. See the Panther API Alerts & Errors documentation for an example.

Option 2: Panther Console

If you are updating less than 25 alerts at once, you can do this directly in the Panther Console. See the documentation for more information: Bulk updating alerts in Panther.

To see a walk-through of this process: in the Panther Console, use keyboard shortcut ⌘+K to pull up the search bar, then search for "bulk update alerts." 

Option 2: Run a script

Run the script below in Terminal to bulk-update Panther alerts. You will need to pip install gql aiohttp for this script to run.

Before you run the script, be sure to make the following changes to it:

  • On line 19, replace YOUR_PANTHER_INSTANCE with your Panther instance URL.
  • Generate an API token in the Panther console with the Manage Alerts permission. Insert into line 20, replacing YOUR_API_KEY.
  • Update lines 6-15 with values as needed for your query.
    • You can query with a date range, alert status, severities, log sources, or detection ID. Use some combination of these to get the alerts you're looking for.
    • Statuses, Severities, and Log Sources must be in the form of a list.
    • Detection ID is a string, and can be found in the "view detection" page in the Panther Console (see example on line 14).
    • If a variable is not needed, set to None. Don't comment the variable out, or the script will throw an exception.
  • The script will seek confirmation from you before setting the alerts to resolved. Please double check the results of the query before committing to it, as this action is not reversible.
