Column groups allow you to customize the way list data is displayed in Navigate, Events, and Event Analysis views. You can define column groups in the Manage Column Groups dialog, which is accessible in the Events view (see Manage Meta Groups). The column group definition includes the meta keys to use as column titles, the position of the column in the list, and the default width of the column. You can add, delete, import, export, and edit column groups. At fresh installation, out-of-the-box (OOTB) column groups are available for use in the Manage Column Groups dialog. The OOTB column groups are prefixed with RSA and can be duplicated but cannot be edited or deleted. You can also create custom column groups.

After column groups are defined in the Manage Column Groups dialog you can use them in other Investigate views. In the Navigate view, Profiles allow you to select a column group to use when the profile is applied. In the Event Analysis view, you can select a column group to apply to the Events panel.

To access this dialog, go to INVESTIGATE > Events and in the View drop-down list select Manage Column Groups. The View option is named for the current value, for example, Detail View, List View, Log View, or the currently selected column group.

This is the Custom Column Groups drop-down
