User preferences that apply to the Security Analytics application in general are documented in this section. Preferences that apply specifically to Investigation are described in the Configure Navigate View and Events View topic in the Investigation and Malware Analysis Guide.

You can view and manage different user preferences in the Preferences panel. You can:

  • Set the application language
  • Set the browser time zone
  • Set the default component
  • Enable notifications
  • Enable context menus

These preferences apply to your own profile.

Set the Language, Browser Time Zone, and Default Component for Security Analytics

The default language for all of the dashboards, dashlets, views, and dialogs that you see is the preferred language that your browser sends. If Security Analytics is not localized to that language, the default language is English (United States). You can change the language to other languages in which Security Analytics has been localized. These settings can be configured in the Application Settings section.

To change the language, browser time zone, and default component of Security Analytics:

  1. Select a localization in the Language drop-down list.
  2. Select a time zone in the Browser Time Zone drop-down list.
  3. Select the component that serves as the opening view when you log on to Security Analytics in the Default Component drop-down list.
  4. Click Apply.
    The selected settings become effective immediately.

Enable or Disable System Notifications for Your User Account

By default, Security Analytics system notifications are enabled when a new user account is created. Each user can change this according to preference. To enable or disable notifications for your user account:

  1. In the Application Settings section, click the Enable Notifications checkbox.
  2. Click Apply.
    The new preference becomes effective immediately.

Enable or Disable Context Menus for Your User Account

By default, Security Analytics context menus are enabled when a new user account is created. Context menus provide additional functions for specific views when you right-click a view. Each user can change this according to preference. To enable or disable context menus for your user account:

  1. In the Application Settings section, click the Show Context Menus checkbox.
  2. Click Apply.
    The new preference becomes effective immediately.
