Filtering the Labeled Alarms and Vulnerabilities

USM Anywhere uses labels as a mechanism to classify alarms and vulnerabilities. These labels make it easy to filter items by label so that you can locate them easily and track their status. When the AlienApp for Jira executes a response action for an alarm or vulnerability, it automatically applies the Jira label to it. You can use this label as a filter so that a page displays data for only those items related to an AlienApp for Jira response action.

To view Jira action alarms or vulnerabilities

  1. Open the Alarms page or Vulnerabilities page.
  2. If the Search & Filters panel is not displayed, click the Filter icon () to expand it.

    USM Anywhere includes several filters displayed by default.

  3. Locate the Labels filter and select the Jira label.

    Use the Labels filter to view items with the Jira label

    If the Labels filter is not displayed, click the Configure Filters link at the bottom of the Search & Filters panel to configure filters for the page. (For more information about configuring filters for the page display, see Managing Filters.)
