Sensor Filtering with Aanval 8

Aanval 8 Sensor Filtering

New to Aanval 8 is an all-new system for quickly filtering data based on sensors. For example, while viewing Frequent Events, a user can filter the view to focus on a single sensor or group of sensors by quickly disabling the view of other active sensors. While event importing and processing for disabled/filtered sensors continues in the background, event and analytical tools calculate and display data from only selected/unfiltered sensors. As filtered sensors are again checked or enabled, displays quickly and automatically update to account for the additional sensors and data.

How to Filter a Sensor

Hover over the name of the logged-in user in the upper right-hand corner, and a listing of options will show in a drop-down box.

Select Change Sensors View and a box will be displayed of sensors that have been set up and enabled on their respective Sensor Configuration pages. Check or uncheck sensors to change the data view on any menu. And because the Change Sensors View is part of the menu bar, it’s available to access on any page, allowing you to quickly make changes and get the focus and data you need.

Troubleshooting

Checking the Change Sensors View is the first menu to check when users setting new sensors question why they aren’t seeing events or sensors after just setting them up. Sensors do not automatically enable in this menu after being added to Aanval in a Sensor Configuration menu.

If the Change Sensors View is blank after adding new sensors, go back to the proper Sensor Configuration menu and check the User Permissions at the bottom of the page to ensure each user has intended access to each sensor. Once updated, refresh the page and select the Change Sensors View menu again and the new sensors will be available to check.
