Setting Page Columns Display

  • Dark
    Light
  • PDF

Your system comes with a set of pre-defined columns in each asset table. You can edit this predefined set and configure which columns are displayed on the page. Drag columns in the table to reset the order of the columns that are displayed. When you export tables to CSV files, the columns in the CSV file are ordered like in the table.
The column view is set on each asset page separately and displays columns appropriate for that asset. Once you arrange the columns as you like, you can save the columns as your own default view.

  2. To remove columns from the page, select the required columns in the Displayed Columns list and then click Remove.
  3. Click Reset to cancel changes any changes you made to the column display, and return to the default view
  4. Click Save as User Default to save the selected columns as your default view. The selected columns are then displayed by default every time you open the page.
  5. Click Done when you have finished your configuration. If you do not save this view as the default view, then the configuration will not be saved as your default.

Use the following additional options from the Edit Columns menu:
To reset to your default view:
Click Edit Columns and select Reset Columns to User Default to restore your default column view.
To reset to the System Default view:
Click Edit Columns and select Reset Columns to System Default. The System Default columns are restored

  • Edit System Default - This option enables to control the system default column view and also the user default column view for new users.

Edit System Search Default - Set the columns that will be displayed in the system searches. Refer to Free Text Search in Table

You can also reset the view from the Devices/Users page.
Click Reset next to the saved query name to reset the Devices/Users page to the user default column view with no filtering and display all devices/users.

Note:
Queries can be saved with the columns in the Displayed Columns even when no query expression has been defined. These saved queries can then be loaded and used as a template for building new saved queries with the predefined columns and column filters.

Refining the Data Displayed in Table Columns and Rows

You can use complex expressions to refine the display in the Device and User pages in order to be able to zoom in on precisely the information that interests you to see. You can use the following sorts of data refinement

  • Refine field values by condition
  • Refine field values by adapter connection
  • Refine Asset entities by condition
  • Refine Asset entities by adapter connection

Data refinement does not impact the 'Count' of the results, only the results that are displayed.
On the right of each field, click Filtericon.png to open the Refine Data Display dialog.

RefineDateDisplay

Once you configure data refinement:

  • This sets the columns and rows displayed in the queries you create.
  • This sets the way CSV export is displayed, including report or enforcement actions that export data as CSV files.

Data refinement is currently not supported for vulnerabilities.

Refine Field Values by Condition

You can use complex expressions to create sophisticated filters to refine the display and search for specific values to be displayed in each table column on the page, including multi-field columns. Open the Field values - refine by condition pane. This acts as a sophisticated column filter. Use the parameters below to set conditions as required.

FieldValues_condition

Each row in the Field values - refine by condition pane is a filter expression that consists of the following elements:

  1. AND / OR switch
  2. NOT Flag
  3. Field drop-down
  4. Operator drop-down
  5. Value field
  6. Parentheses controls

Refer to the Query Wizard for detailed explanations of each field and the parameters it can contain.

Note the following: Field Name Drop-Down The field name drop-down shows the column on which you are filtering. The options available depend on the column on which you are filtering. If this is a complex field, all of the values that are part of the complex field are displayed and you can choose the field by which to filter. If for instance, you filter on the Installed Software column, the field drop-down contains a range of possible values to filter by.

ColumFilterSW

When complex filters are defined, Axonius will display only values that match the complete filter.

Refining Field Values by Adapter Connection

You can configure the system to not show values from a specific adapter connection, that is from specific adapters or from connections for a defined adapter, in a selected column. Only values from adapters which are not excluded will be displayed in that column.

  1. Open Field values - refine by adapter connection.
  2. Click in the Exclude values from adapter connections field; all adapters connected and their connections are displayed.

ColumFilterAdapter

  1. Start typing to search for a specific adapter or connection name, then select the adapter or connection that you want to exclude values from.

  2. Click next to the adapter to choose all connections for the adapter; or choose specific connections.

  3. Choose as many adapters or connections as required and click in the Refine Data Display dialog to close this drop-down..

Use Select All or Clear All to change your selections.

Refining Asset Entities by Condition

Use Asset entities - refine by condition to refine the contents of the asset entity that are displayed according to the rows, for instance, you can hide a row, an asset entity, which contains a Software Version with a specific value.

  1. Open Asset entities - refine by condition

AssetEntitybyConditin

  1. Create a filter as explained in Refine Field Values by Condition

Refining Asset Entities by Adapter Connection

Use Asset entities - refine by adapter connection to not show asset entities from a specific adapter connection, that is from specific adapters or from connections for a defined adapter,
In this way you can hide a row, an asset entity, if it comes from a specific adapter, or adapter connection. A device without any asset entities might be completely hidden.

  1. Open Asset entities - refine by adapter connection
  2. Create a filter as explained in Refining Field Values by Adapter Connection.
