View Online Help

Online help links take you outside of Security Analytics to the RSA online documentation. This site has a complete documentation set for Security Analytics, and the links take the user directly to the topic that describes the part of the user interface currently in view.

To view the online help topic for the current location, click help icon in the Security Analytics toolbar or in a dialog. The relevant help topic is displayed in a separate browser window. The topic describes the features and functions of the current view or dialog. From that topic, you can quickly navigate to the related procedures.

The following figure is an example of the online help icon in the Security Analytics toolbar.
