To Achieve this Milestone

Search for a device and examine its profile using one of the following methods:

  • Search bar on Axonius Dashboard - to search for a specific asset.
  • Devices screen - run a saved query or create your own to get a desired list of devices.

The search bar in the Axonius dashboard screen enables free text search to identify and investigate a specific asset.

  1. Open the the Axonius Dashboard screen by clicking the image.png icon on the left navigation panel.
  2. Enter the text to be searched.
    When you search for a specific text, the search is executed on main device or user attributes, inlcuding:
    • Devices - asset name, host, manufacturer serial number, MAC addresses, IP addresses, last used users and tags.
    • Users - mail, username, first name, last name, tag.
  3. The Search screen opens, displaying the results in two separate tables, Devices and Users, sorted by the number of solutions discovered the asset ('Adapter' column).
  4. In the search screen, you can:
    • Investigate a specific asset - click any device or user record to review its details. For details, see Device Profile screen and User Profile screen.
    • View the entire device or user list of results - click 'View in Devices' or 'Click in Users' will display the complete list of results. For details, see Devices screen and Users Screen.
