A brief description of each option:

  • Manually – allows you to set a time/date stamp for when to being polling but will not poll automatically after the manually started initial poll.
  • Every “X” minutes – allows you to state a time in minutes you want Edge to automatically poll the threat intelligence source.
    • It is recommended to use 10 minutes or more
  • Hourly at “X” minutes – allows you to state when polling will begin at either 5, 15, 30, or 60 minutes of the hour
