Paired Configuration

Modified on: Mon, 17 Jul, 2023 at 11:24 AM


Paired configurations are used to share the Maltego Desktop Client's working environment with the users who install Seeds (Hub items) from the iTDS. 

You can use the Export Config feature from the Maltego Desktop Client, to export a config file (.mtz) which can be uploaded on this page.

This exported config file can include the following: 

  • Custom Entities
  • Icons
  • Transform Sets 
  • Machines

Add a Paired Configuration to your iTDS

To add a new Paired Configuration, click on the Add Paired Configuration button at bottom left corner of the paired configuration list page. This will take you to the following page:

The following fields can be set when adding a new paired configuration:

  • Configuration Name: Add a unique alpha-numeric name for the configuration, this name will be used to select the paired configuration when creating new Seeds.
  • Configuration File: Choose the .mtz config file to be uploaded. 
  • Seeds: Select all the Seeds (Hub Items) that you want this config file to be attached with.

Click the Add Paired Configuration button to upload the file and save changes. Any Transform Seed attached to the paired configuration will install the .mtz config file alongside the Transforms.

A full example of configuring a paired configuration with an iTDS is explained the Development guide here: Paired Configurations.
