The Properties dialog opens below the Monitor panel when you select Properties from the context menu. The Properties dialog provides a user-friendly messaging tool for communication with system nodes. This is useful for getting and setting values for a property for multiple services.

All nodes support the help message, which contains:

  • A description of the node.
  • The list of supported messages with a corresponding description.
  • Security roles needed to access the messages.

The available messages vary according to the service and root folder. Many of these messages are also accessible as options with a Security Analytics dashboard or view.

To access the Properties dialog:

  1. In the Security Analytics menu, select Administration > Services.
  2. Select a service and select Actns.png > View > Explore.
  3. In the Node list, select a file.
  4. In the Monitor panel, right-click a property and select Properties.
    The Properties dialog is displayed. You can also right-click any file in the Node list to display the Properties dialog.
