Predefined Views

USM Anywhere includes several predefined views of events based on usual environments and technologies. These views have pre-defined column headers that show the most relevant event fields. You can see a summarized event view without having to spend the time creating a custom view.

These predefined views operate the same way as the views you can create yourself. Some of these views have also predefined filters.

These views are available under the ACTIVITY option of the primary menu.
