Displayed data:

Operations Correlation rule operations are displayed.
Status Correlation rule status is displayed - Enabled or Disabled.
By clicking on the status you can change it.

To configure a new correlation rule, click on the Create correlation button in the top right-hand corner.

Mass editing options

Buttons below the list offer some mass-editing options:

  • Enable - change the correlation rule status to Enabled
  • Disable - change the correlation rule status to Disabled
  • Delete - delete the correlation rules

To use these options, mark the checkboxes before the respective correlation rules, then click on the required button.


As the list may contain a number of correlation rules, it may be needed to filter out the ones you really need.

The Filter link is available above the list of correlation rules. If you click on it, a filter becomes available where you can filter correlation rules by name and status.
