The event sources panel displays attributes for the currently selected event source group. You can configure the list of attributes that are displayed, as well as sort the list on any of the displayed attributes. 


Note the following behaviors when sorting event sources:

  • The entire list is sorted, not just the items displayed on the current page. (The navigation bar at the bottom of the page shows how many pages exist for this list of event sources.)
  • The sort order is case sensitive. For any string column, if the values contains a mix of lower case and upper case, the upper case appears in the list before the lower case.

For example, assume the Event Source Type column contains the following entries: Netflow, APACHE, netwitnesspectrum, ciscoasa. The sort order would be as follows:

  • Netflow
  • ciscoasa
  • netwitnesspectrum

To sort your event sources:

  1. In the Security Analytics menu, select Administration > Event Sources.
  2. Select the Manage tab.

    The Event Sources Manage tab is displayed.


  3. To sort a column, click  in the column header.
    The Sort Options drop-down menu is displayed.
  4. Select the sort order that you want.
