The Live Search view provides the ability to browse the configured Live CMS for resources. Once matching resources are found, you can view details, subscribe to resources, and deploy resources to services and service groups.

This is an example of the Search view.

The Live Search view has a panel for specifying search criteria and a panel that displays matching resources. The Search Criteria panel is collapsible to provide more width for viewing the Matching Resources panel.

Search Criteria Panel

This is an example of the Search Criteria panel. 


The following table provides descriptions of the Search Criteria panel features.

                                                                 
FeatureDescription
Keyword(s)Enter a keyword or keywords to browse for resources that have the keyword in the resource name or the resource description. You can use wildcards when you enter a keyword.
Resource Types

Select resources types from the drop-down list to filter resources by type of resource.

Medium

Select one or more mediums from the drop-down list to search for content based on the meta data source.

Available values for medium are as follows:

  • log: applied to content that uses meta derived from log data
  • packet: applied to content that uses meta derived from network packets
  • log and packet: applied to content that correlates meta derived across log and packet data

Additionally, some resources receive data from either log or packet data: in this case, both mediums are listed (but without the and).

Tags

Select meta tags from the drop-down list to browse based on how the meta is tagged. For example, to browse resources for a Log Decoder, select the netwitness for logs tag. Alternatively, you can click a tag in the Matching Resources panel to insert that tag in this field.

Note: When you search in Live, note that tags you enter are ORed. That is, if you search for accounting and assurance, all content that is tagged as either accounting or assurance is returned.

For more details on the model used for tagging content, see the Investigation Model on RSA Link: https://community.rsa.com/docs/DOC-62313.

Required Meta Key(s)Enter a specific meta key; for example, threat.source. Alternatively, you can click a meta key in the Matching Resources panel to insert that tag in this field.
Generated Meta Value(s)Enter a generated meta value; for example, netwitness. Alternatively, you can click a generated meta key in the Matching Resources panel to insert that tag in this field.
Research Created DateSpecify a date range during which resources were created. For example, to browse resources that were created between January 1 and January 4, you select January 1 as the start date and January 4 as the end date. You must enter dates in mm/dd/yyyy format or you click CalendarIcon.PNG and pick dates from a calendar.
Research Modified DateSpecify a date range during which resources were modified. For example, to browse resources that were modified between January 1 and January 4, you select January 1 as the start date and January 4 as the end date. You must enter dates in mm/dd/yyyy format or you click CalendarIcon.PNG and pick dates from a calendar.
SearchClick Search to send the search request to the Live server. More specific search criteria return matching resources more quickly.
CancelClick Cancel to cancel the search in progress.
