TheHive dashboards, while they are great at showing data counts and displaying then as graphs, there is one feature that was lacking in that it cant display a data table of what those cases are. So while you can build a dashboard to get a snapshot of where your team is at, you can’t see what cases and task that are in play. While there is an open issue to add this functionality, I thought i’d try something a little different with TheHive to fill that gap, and export the case and task data into a Splunk kvstore and build it out that way.
Recently I’ve been working with python and smtplib to automate sending emails based off a template. The sending part of the emails worked flawlessly but I had issues where the emails were being delivered into the junk folder instead of the Inbox folder in Outlook. Now, if you’re going to a scripting emails to send out notifications, newsletters and general communications, losing your audience because the email gets trashed isnt ideal.
