The Event Reconstruction view provides a reconstruction of a selected event from the Events view. By default, NetWitness Platform displays the best reconstruction for the event determined by the event content, or the default reconstruction that you have selected in the Default Session View setting for Investigate. You can use the options in the Event Reconstruction toolbar to change the reconstruction method, view top-to-bottom or side-by-side results, select request and response views, export an event, export meta values, extract files, open an email attachment, and open the event in a new tab.
To access this view, do one of the following:
- In any Events view, double-click an event.
- In the Events view with Detail View selected, right-click Event Analysis at the end of the event, and select Event Reconstruction.
- In the Event Reconstruction toolbar of previewed reconstruction, click Open Event in New Tab.
- In the Navigate view, select Actions > Go to event in Event Reconstruction, and enter an event ID.
