Runbooks V2 is a licensed product. Cloud-hosted instances licensed for Runbooks will see both Runbooks and Runbooks V2 options available in the main menu for a limited time to allow for the transfer of existing content to Runbooks V2, at which point the legacy solution will be retired and Runbooks V2 will be renamed as Runbooks.
Instances created on or after Nov 10th will have only see Runbooks V2 at this time.
A runbook, or test plan, is the documented form of an organization's procedures for conducting a task or series of tasks. The purpose of a runbook is to script engagements to the command-line level with the intent of building a library of engagements to ensure a robust execution and coverage of an engagement objective while easily collecting valuable evidence for reporting.
Runbooks V2 is the next iteration in Purple Team exercises by providing a mechanism to script red and blue team engagements down to the procedure level to cover the attack surface and provide a unified security solution.
Runbooks V2 works in conjunction with the RunbooksDB repository found in the Content Library, which enables reuse of existing procedures, techniques, tactics, and methodologies as is or with modification to fit a new test plan for a client.
