Much of the information displayed in the Security Analytics dashboards and dashlets is best displayed in rows and columns. This is called a grid, and all grids can be customized in several ways. You can:

  • Select which columns to display.
  • Sort each column in ascending or descending order
  • Change the width of columns.

This is an example of a grid (the Live Search View's Matching Resources grid).

Change the Column Width

You can change the width of a column to make columns narrower or wider than they are by default. For example, if a column is too narrow to display all of its contents, you can widen it.

  1. Hover in the title bar on the right edge of the title.
  2. When the cursor changes to the column resize cursor (one short vertical line with arrows pointing right and left), click and drag the line to make the column wider or narrower. This is an example of resizing the Name column in progress.

  3. When the width is correct, release the mouse button.

Select Which Columns to Display

  1. Hover in the title bar on the right edge of the title.
  2. When the cursor changes to the selection list icon (104SelectListIcon.png), click to see the list.
  3. At the bottom of the list, select Columns.

    A list of available columns is displayed with a check mark for each column currently included in the grid.

  4. Select a column name to select or deselect it.

    When you deselect a column name, that column is removed from the grid. When you select a column name, that column is added to the grid. This is an example of the Matching Resources grid after several columns are deselected.

Sort the Contents of a Column

To tailor a grid to better serve your purpose, you can choose how the contents of each grid column are sorted.

  1. Hover in the title bar on the right edge of the title.
  2. When the cursor changes to the selection list icon (104SelectListIcon.png) click to see the menu.

    The menu displays a list of available sort options.

  3. Select from the sort options; for example, Sort Ascending or Sort Descending.

    The grid is sorted based on your selection.
