GFI EventsManager enables you to build custom queries, using the Edit Query Restriction dialog. You can refer to the article Using Edit Query Restriction Dialog for more information.
Queries are instructions GFI EventsManager sends to the database backend when storing and retrieving data. They are also used to configure rules to trigger actions and alerts when certain attribute values are detected.
This article describes different scenarios using the Edit Query Restriction Dialog for granular configuration.
|Build queries to filter report information and generate reports pertaining to specific attributes.
|Configuring user accounts
|Prevent GFI EventsManager Management Console users from displaying unauthorized information about other users, event logs, or network activity.
|Configuring events processing rules
|Scan collected event logs for attributes that match values configured in events processing queries. This enables you to inspect network activity in granular detail, which helps you to proactively resolve network issues before evolving into serious problems.
These are the dialogs when launching Users, Events Processing Rules, and Report Queries in Edit Query Restriction Dialog feature.
