Using Find / Update in SecurityCenter Reports A “How To” Guide for SecurityCenter
Updating Filters in a Report • SecurityCenter reporting is very powerful because of many filtering options available. • In some cases, changing the filters can be difficult. • Tenable provides a “Find/Update” button for several filters.
Find / Update Filter The Find / Update tool can update the following filters: • Address • Repository • Scan Policy • Severity • IAVM ID • DNS Name • Asset • Audit File • CVE ID
Where is this? • The Find / Update link is located on the top of the “Definition” tab when editing a report.
Search Filters • This example will update the audit file field. • Click Add Filter, and click on Audit File
Is Set or Is Not Set, that is the question? • This example uses a search for filters where the Audit File field is not used or is empty. • In Search Filters, add a filter to look for the unused field. • “Audit File” “Is Not Set” • In Update Action, add an action to add the audit filter to the filters. • “Audit File” “Is Set” “File Name”
Search Filters • The Search Filter is going to look for the filter condition currently in use that needs to be updated. • In this example, an update to the Audit File field is reviewed. • If the audit file field is not currently in use, then select the “Is Not Set”. • Please notethat the “Save” button must be selected. • In this example, the audit file field is not set.
Matching Filter Found • After clicking on the Save button, the matching filters in the report will be shown below.
Add Action • The next step is to add an action. • Click “Add Action” • To add the audit file filter, choose “Is Set To”, then select the appropriate audit file. • Click the Save button
Update Action Saved • The update action is saved, yet is not applied. • Now review the settings that are going to change.
Update • To apply the updates, click the Update button. • Click Close to complete the update process.
Verify the Filter Change • Navigate to any of the components in the report, and verify the filter has changed.
