Whether you are running ad hoc searches during a forensic investigation or running standard searches for health checks, you can save any search to run again later.
When you create a search that you would like to reuse, you can save it to the Library. From there you can run it again, share with others, edit the search, or create a Scheduled Search to run at a regularly scheduled time, and set up alerts.
The saved search will also include any charts you have created in the Aggregates tab.
To save a search:
- Run a search query you'd like to save.
- (Optional) After the search results are complete, in the Aggregates tab, select a chart type to display the data visually.
- Click Save As below the search field.
- In the Save Item dialog appears.
- Name. Enter a name for your saved search.
- Description. (Optional). Enter a description for the search search.
- Query. You can edit your query, if desired. Choose a Time Range option that will be the default range when you run the saved search.
- Use Receipt Time. Click the checkbox to run the search using message receipt time. For more information, see see Use Receipt Time.
- Location to save to. Select a folder location for the saved search
- Click Save to save the search without scheduling. If you want to schedule the search and optionally configure an alert, click Schedule this search and follow the instructions on Schedule a Search.
