November 17, 2023 - Application Update

Often, organizations will document standard procedures or runbooks to follow when investigating or responding to certain types of security events. To help analysts more easily access these documents, the description fields in Rules now support standard markdown syntax for links (only). Since the description is included in any resulting Signals, analysts can easily click the link to open the documentation in a new tab/window.

For example, you could put the following in a Rule description field: Follow [these steps]( to investigate. Then, when a Signal was generated from that Rule, it would include that text as a clickable link, like this:
