Common Features - Search & Filtering
Throughout the UNUM interface certain features are common such as Search & Filtering.
While the Search feature is described in numerous sections the following provides a general overview as to the Search & Filtering function.
The Search box function provides a useful method of searching for connections related information using an auto-populate feature based on previous searches.
Example: You begin by entering an IP address, e.g., 10.9. and a drop down list appears highlighting the search criteria along with source and destination IP addresses.
Select and entry by clicking the desired IP address in the drop down list and the information is auto-populated in the search box.
Clicking on the desired IP address initiates the search.
The related information displayed in the graphical interface is updated with data from the search criteria and the filter information is highlighted in the filter bar.
