Managing Custom Insight Statuses

This page has information about creating and managing custom Insight statuses.

View Insight statuses

To view Insight statuses:

  1. Click the gear icon near the top of the Cloud SIEM UI.
  2. Under Workflow, choose Statuses.
  3. This screenshot of the Statuses page shows the three Insight statuses that are preconfigured:
    • New. Insights that have not been worked on yet.
    • In Progress. Insights that are being investigated. If you want to create custom statuses to represent different types of "in progress" states, you can click the Enabled toggle to disable the default In Progress status to reduce confusion.
    • Closed. Insights whose investigations are complete.
      Statuses page

Preconfigured Insight statuses cannot be edited or deleted. You can however create custom statuses, as described in the following section.

Change the order of Insight statuses

You can change the status of an Insight on the Details pane of the page for the Insight. Note that the items in the Status dropdown appear in the same order as they do on the Statuses page.

Status dropdown

To change the order that the statuses appear in the Status dropdown, you can reorder them on the Statuses page, except for New and Closed. New must always be the first status, and Closed must always be the last.

To change the order of Insight statuses:

  1. Click the gear icon near the top of the Cloud SIEM UI.
  2. Under Workflow, choose Statuses.
  3. On the Statuses page, each status that can be moved has a handle to the left of its name.

  4. To move a status to a different location on the list, use your mouse to drag it to the desired location.

Edit or delete a custom Insight status

On the Statuses page, you can edit or delete any of the custom Insight statuses that have been created. 

The edit and delete icons are only available for custom statuses.

When you edit a custom status, you can change both the status name and the status description.

When you click the delete icon for a custom status, you’ll be prompted to confirm that you want to delete the status. If there are any Insights that currently have the status you will not be able to delete the status. 

tip

On the Insights page, you can search for Insights by status to identify the Insights that have the status that you want to delete. Once you assign a different status to those Insights, you’ll be able to delete the status.
