Filter Alerts

The Alerts UI currently provides five filters that you can apply to alerts. You can use these filters to refine the list of alerts and collect additional information on the alerts. These filters are listed in the Filters panel on the left of the Alerts window.

  1. Click one of the filters in the Filters panel on the left of the window.
    The Filter expands to list all of the facet values contained in the filter. For example, in the following figure, the enrichments:geo_dst_addr:country filter contain the countries Russia, France, and USA.
    After you modify the filter, you will see a warning indicating that the current alert data is not in sync with your filter parameters:
    Click the (search) button to refresh the alerts data.
  2. You can continue to apply filters to the alerts displayed in the Alerts window to further refine the alerts list.
    As you select filters and facets, they are displayed in the Searches field.
    For example, in the following figure, we've applied the source.type filter with the bro facet and then the ip_dst_addr filter with the IP address
  3. You can also enter alert filters in the Search field.
    For example:
    alert_status:(NEW OR OPEN)
  4. To clear filters that have been populated to the Searches field, click (delete icon) at the end of the Searches field.
