As of May 2022, the Cisco ISE pxGrid App for QRadar Ver 3.1 is officially Validated and released by IBM, available for download from IBM XFE


On app updates, its recommended to remove the old app and a new install of the updated app as there are many changes.


Install & Config Guide



The Cisco ISE pxGrid App V3.1 supports Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) 2.7+ and QRadar 7.3.3 FP10+/7.4.1 FP2+ and above. It leverages Cisco Platform Exchange Grid (pxGrid 2.0) to orchestrate all communication and data interchange / exchange between IBM QRadar and Cisco ISE. This provides ISE contextual information from within the QRadar console. The App has dashboards that provide key information such as Passed and Failed authentications, Device Summary, Compliance, TrustSec and MDM. It also allows the QRadar admin to take right-click Adaptive Network Control (ANC) mitigation actions for Rapid Threat Containment (RTC).
