Searching for Assets

Applies to Product: USM Appliance™ AlienVault OSSIM®

You can either search for or filter your assets by simply typing what you are looking for in the search box, in the upper left-hand corner of the Asset List view. (For UI definitions, see Asset List View.)

The system searches on different fields depending on what you enter:

The result of your search displays with the number of assets identified.

USM Appliance provides a large selection of filters, so that you can find assets easily.

More Filters Contains additional filters including Network, Group, Sensor, Device Type, Service, Operating System, Software, Model, Label, Location, and Plugin. Essentially you can filter on every field that classifies or describes an asset.

When applying filters, the search uses a logical "AND" operator when you use different filters. For example, the following search looks for assets that have alarms and events, which were added during the last day:

When you use the same filter multiple times, such as Network in the following example, USM Appliance uses the logical "OR" operator instead:
