This topic provides a description of the Manage Default Meta Keys dialog.

In the Manage Default Meta Keys dialog, analysts can specify the meta keys to be displayed during navigation for a specific service. This can help you find the desired data more quickly and prevents the loading of meta that is not of interest.

When you modify the default meta keys for a non-indexed meta key, you cannot set the key to Open. If you change the default view for a group of meta keys to Open and some of the meta keys are non-indexed, the non-indexed meta keys revert to Auto. As a result, the meta key is automatically loaded only if it is indexed, and non-indexed meta keys are Closed until opened manually.

To access this dialog:

  1. In the Security Analytics menu, select Investigation > Navigate.
    The Investigate dialog is displayed.
  2. To choose a service, do one of the following:
    • Double-click a service.
    • Select a service and click Navigate.
      The Navigate view for the selected service is displayed.
  3. In the Navigate View toolbar, select Meta > Manage Default Meta Keys.
    The Manage Default Meta Keys dialog is displayed.
