Filtering the security data

Summary data filters let you choose the policies, modules, operating systems, and messages that Symantec Enterprise Security Manager includes in the grid, chart, or security reports. The filters do not affect the reports that the Reports tool produces.

You can use filters to remove policies, modules, operating systems, and the messages that you do not want to display.

The filters apply to the summary data in the enterprise tree from My ESM Enterprise to a selected manager. The filters may go down through the manager's domains to the modules in the summary branch. As a result, you can filter summary data at any level that Symantec Enterprise Security Manager reports.

You can select filter properties using the Summary Data Filter dialog box as follows:

To create or edit a filter

  1. On the console task bar, click the View/edit summary filter settings icon.

  2. Select the policy, modules, operating systems, and messages for your filter on the corresponding tabs of the dialog box.

    For help, select the tab, and then click Help.
