Copy / Paste Fields on the Screen

A number of screens display the copy-to-clipboard icon when hovering over a field to allow easy copy/paste of screen information.

Clickable Items

Some fields such as assets and security controls can be clicked to drill down and display them in detail and some of these also have the option of right-click giving common browser link options such as opening in a new window or tab.

In the asset panel, which is displayed from a number of places e.g. Cloud Graph, you can click on to open the asset details in a new tab.

Download as CSV File

Some screens, such as Permissive Access by Asset, have the option of exporting and downloading the information displayed as a CSV file, which can be viewed using Excel and other CSV readers. When available, the CSV icon appears on the screen.

Pin Window

On some screens, clicking a line or an element displays a window with additional details. Examples include effective access for an asset rule and violations for an application. In some cases, a pin icon appears on the window. Toggle the pin icon to switch between displaying the window while overlaying part of the original area (not pinned - ) and displaying it without overlaying the area (pinned - ). When pinned, if other items are selected from the list, the window remains in place and its contents are updated with the appropriate information for the new selected item.
