Filter Modes

Items and item types in filters can be set to include or exclude. The following examples explain those settings.

  • Filter In (Is)
    User (Origin or Impacted) IS ‘pete’
    Result: Either Origin nor Impacted has the value ‘pete’. At least one of the fields has a value of ‘pete’
  • Filter In (Is) Blank with Filter in Null Values?
    User (Origin or Impacted) IS NULL
    Result: Either Origin or Impacted is NULL. At least one of the fields must be null.

  • Filter Out (Is Not)
    User (Origin or Impacted) IS NOT ‘pete’
    Result: Neither Origin nor Impacted has the value ‘pete’. Both fields have a value other than ‘pete’

  • Filter Out (Is Not) Blank with Filter out Null Values?
    User (Origin or Impacted) IS NOT NULL
    Result: Neither Origin nor Impacted is NULL. Both fields must have a value.

Wildcards in Search Strings

LogRhythm can use wildcards and pattern matching in search string filters to increase flexibility and efficiency. For example:

  • Use wildcards to search for a particular sender or recipient email address in the Platform Manager, Data Processor, or LogMart by specifying only some of the characters in the address.
  • Filter to find any matches for senders at a given domain name.
  • Filter to find a specific host name.
