This topic introduces the features for creating and managing rules for Decoder traffic capture in the Services Config > Rules tabs.
The Rules tabs in the Services Config view for Decoders and Log Decoders provide a user interface for defining capture rules. Each type of rule has a grid with slightly different columns and different parameters in the Rule Editor dialog.
You can display this view by doing the following:
- In the Security Analytics menu, select Administration > Services.
- Select a service and >View > Config.
The Config view for the selected service is displayed.
- Click one of the rules tabs: Network Rules, App Rules, or Correlation Rules.
The selected rules tab is displayed.
This is an example of the App Rules tab.
