As an administrators you can import or export a list that is configured in the Context Hub service which can be used by an analyst. The file to be imported or exported is a CSV file and you can add multiple lists as Data Sources.

Prerequisites

Ensure that Context Hub is enabled and the service is available in Admin > Services view of NetWitness Suite.

Import a List

After you have imported a list, you can perform the following tasks:

  • Import values to an existing list
  • Add row to a list
  • Edit a list name and description
  • Edit a value from a list
  • Delete a list
  • Delete row from a list

Note: You have to make the same changes to the relevant .CSV file, so that the changes get reflected the next time the schedule recurs. Otherwise, when you import values into an existing single-column or multi-column list, the data is overwritten from the source file the next the schedule recurs.

Import Single-Column List

To import a list:

  1. Select ADMIN > Services.
    The services view is displayed.
  2. In the Services panel, select the Context Hub service and click  > View > Config.
    The Services Config View of the Context Hub service is displayed.
  3. Click the Lists tab.

    The Import List dialog is displayed.

    1. In the Delimiter field, select the delimiter to separate the values in a list from the options—Comma, CR (Carriage Return), and LF (Line Feed).
  6. Click Upload to upload the CSV file to Context Hub. 

These lists are considered as data sources for retrieving contextual information. But you can append to an existing multi-column list. The data will be appended only if the number of columns match.

Note: You cannot create a new multi column list by importing. For information on how to import multi-column list, see Configure List Data Source for Context Hub.
