In the Context Menu Actions panel, you can view context actions that appear as options in a context menu. This feature is available to allow administrators to add custom context actions to the Security Analytics instance. An expert knowledge of Security Analytics objects and CSS classes is required.

In the initial view of this panel, the default context actions in Security Analytics are displayed. You cannot edit or delete any of the default context actions.

To view existing context actions in Security Analytics both default and custom:

  1. In the Security Analytics menu, select Administration > System.

To add a context menu action in Security Analytics:

    The definition includes the following:
    1. The menu item as it appears in the context menu.

    3. The type of context action. All Security Analytics context action types begin with this string:  UAP. common.contextmenu.actions.
    4. The names of the modules in which the context action is available.
    5. The menu within Security Analytics, for example, URLContextAction or LivePostContextAction.
    6. The CSS classes to which the context action applies.
