This page is the central location for all developer documentation on how to use the IBM Security App Framework. You can use the IBM Security App Framework to develop new application modules that integrate with the existing QRadar user interface and expose new capabilities. A QRadar app is a means to augment and enrich your current QRadar system with new data and functionality. You can download and install other shared apps that are created by IBM®, its Business Partners, and other QRadar customers.
