CVE Hunt to ServiceNow Incident

Workflow #0009

This workflow uses Cisco Orbital to look for endpoints that are vulnerable for a given CVE. For demonstration purposes we use CVE-2020-0796 which has been added to Orbital as a catalog query. After the Orbital query is executed, we open a ServiceNow incident with the results.

  • The following system atomics are used by this workflow:
    • Orbital - Query All Endpoints
    • Threat Response - Generate Access Token
  • The following atomic actions must be imported before you can import this workflow:
  • The targets and account keys listed at the bottom of the page
  • Cisco Secure Endpoint with Orbital
  • ServiceNow

Workflow Steps

  1. Get an API token for Orbital
  2. Execute a catalog query for all endpoints using Orbital
  3. Fetch the results of the Orbital query
  4. Iterate through each result and build a table of vulnerable/not-vulnerable endpoints
  5. Assemble the text for the ServiceNow incident
  6. Create the ServiceNow incident ticket


  • If you want the workflow to run on a schedule, you need to create a schedule and then add it as a trigger within the workflow
  • Update the ServiceNow User ID local variable with the username you want incidents opened as. This can either match the username in your ServiceNow Account Key or, if the account has the appropriate permissions, can be a different user
  • Update the ServiceNow - Create Incident activity towards the end of the workflow with any changes to the ticket properties you want
