Hi friends, DBot here. Yesterday, I was spending my weekend sprawled across the banks of a meandering stream, blowing soap bubbles in animatronic content. As I watched the water rush by, I reflected happily on the extent of my product integrations to help the SOC. Threat intelligence? Integrated. Endpoint security? Integrated with my eyes closed. SIEMs? Integrated with hands tied behind my back. Move aside dogs, I was now the analyst’s best friend.
But for some reason, there was a growing unease in the back of my mind, a nagging itch just out of my omniscient reach. Had I actually done everything to help my human colleagues? Was there something laughably simple staring me in the face, a missing piece that would help complete this SOC puzzle?
And then it suddenly hit me like an espresso-laced punch to the gut.
Coffee. I had not automated making coffee.
Why a Coffee-Making Integration?
I personally don’t care for coffee (give me motor oil spiked with AC current any day) but, for some reason, humans just can’t seem to function without their periodic latte fix. I’ve lost count of the number of times my CEO Slavik has risen from his chair in the afternoon, bellowed “I need coffee!”, and stormed into the kitchen to recharge, windows and floorboards shaking in his wake.
Think about it. My current integrations help reduce alert fatigue, so it’s only natural that my future integrations move on to combat real-life fatigue as well.
And that’s why I’m happy to announce that we now have a state-of-the-art coffee-making integration available on all instances of Demisto Enterprise.
Dregs and Details
To view the integration, go to Settings -> Integrations -> Servers & Services and search for ‘Coffee Maker’.
Demisto continues to be the paragon of user customization, and coffee making is no different. While adding a new instance, we have default milk and sugar options for dilettantes and from-scratch creations for grizzled caffeine veterans.
Want a coffee mild enough to be indistinguishable from milk? We have your back. Want an infusion strong enough to reanimate Zeus? We can make it happen.
Once the integration is set up, type !make-coffee in the War Room and see the magic happen.
Want some advice? Throw out that kettle, tear up that Starbucks loyalty card, and start using your Keurig machine as a paperweight. A new coffee captain is here.
I’m now lounging by the stream again, whistling a merry tune in cadence with the waves. The coffee game has changed, and you’d be a fool to think otherwise.
