Creating a New Event Finder Query

The following walks you through the process of setting-up a new Event Finder query.

  1. Hover over , found in the main toolbar. A drop-down menu appears.
  2. Select . The Event Finder page loads.

    The Event Finder has two main sections. For this topic, we will focus our attention on the Build New Query section.

  3. Specify a date range.

    If you want to search across all data contained in the Sites and Channels you will select, choose All Data.

    If you want to search within a date range, choose Specify Date Range and set the time-frame you want to search within.

    For this example, we will search only as far back as 2014.

  4. Choose a Site with which you want to base this query. Expand the drop-down menu to display a list of your Sites.

    For this example, we will select a CSO Site.

  5. Choose the Channel with which you want to base this query. Expand the drop-down menu to make your selection.

    For this example, we will use the Flow Channel.

  6. Set the Condition that describes the event for which Finder will search in your data library.

    For this example, we want to know when any amount of flow occurred in this particular Channel. Hence, we will choose the 'greater than' (>) symbol.

  7. Specify the Value of the condition.

    In this example, we will write 0 as our value condition, since we want to know when any flow activity occurred in this particular Channel.

  8. Optionally, you can add more parameters to the search query by clicking . Repeat steps 4 thru 7 for each new parameter you add to the query.

  9. Optionally, expand the Advanced Options menu to refine your search. For details about advanced options see, Event Finder Advanced Search Features.
  10. Click .

    The Save Query box appears, where you can add a name and description. If you wish, select Shared with other users to have this query available to all other users in your same Security Group.

  11. Click . You are taken back to the Event Finder page.
  12. Now, hit . You are taken to another page, where a list of search results is given.

    Note: The system may need a few moments to populate your results, depending on the size of the data set.


You can export the results by clicking Export to CSV, found to the left of the report header information.
