Use Asset Investigation to view changes in the values of fields over a set period of time. The investigation data allows you to monitor the fields so you can identify abnormal behavior in the asset.


Events Table

The Events table shows changes in the values of fields on the assets selected.
Each row on the table represents a changed event on the asset and the time at which it happened. The changes are displayed for each adapter source, and not on the aggregated value. Events are displayed sorted by time with the newest events on the top. The first time you open this page, the Values Added column is populated with the first value identified by Axonius, which is the value from which added/removed values will be calculated. These values are marked by an i icon.

The Events table shows the following information:
Date – The date and the time stamp of the changed event in UTC.
Field Name – The name of the field, an adapter icon shows on which adapter the field is.
Values Added - Lists all the values added to the field. If more than 2 values were added, mouse over to see all the values, the first 50 are displayed and can be scrolled through.
Value Removed - Lists all the values removed from the field. If more than 2 values were removed, mouse over to see all the values.
