Profiles allow you to set up custom views in the Navigate view and the Events view based on a meta group, column group, and limiting query (see Use Profiles to Encapsulate Common Areas for Investigation). You can manage out-of-the-box (OOTB) profiles and custom profiles in the Manage Profiles dialog. In Version 11.2 and later, you can organize profiles into profile groups. In the Manage Profiles dialog, you can configure, add, delete, import, and export profiles and profile groups.

The OOTB profile names begin with the RSA prefix and are grouped under Default Profiles. You cannot edit or delete OOTB profiles, but you can copy an existing profile and edit the copy. To access this dialog, in the Navigate or Events view toolbar, select Profile > Manage Profiles in the Navigate or Events view toolbar.
