Analytics
The Analytics module provides one central location to obtain valuable metrics and view trends on findings, assets, runbooks, and SLAs.
Analytics is available on from the Main Menu.

Getting Started

If no filters are selected, the metrics presented are for all findings, assets, and runbooks that the user has permissions to view.
Data viewed can be configured using the filter bar on the right, such as filtering by client or client tags.
Filter options are specific to the type of data (i.e., finding vs. runbook) being queried, and the facets and values available dynamically change when navigating through the Findings, Assets, Runbooks, and Trends & SLAs tabs.
However, the values set on a filter in one tab are kept when navigating through the tabs and other modules of PlexTrac until intentionally cleared, making it easy and efficient to work in multiple areas. In addition, filters that exist on multiple tabs, such as "Client" or "Date," keep the value selected/entered in one tab and update dynamically when moving to another, meaning a date range selected in Findings does not need to be updated in Runbooks.

Query Presets

Any query parameter can be saved for future use by following the instructions below.
Step 1: Select Analytics Filters at the top of the filter column to expand.
Step 2: Click Create Preset.
Step 3: A modal will appear. Enter a value for "Filter Name". This value will be used to select the query later, so it should be intuitive. To make this the default filter setting, click the "Make Default Filter" box. Click Create Filter when finished.
The saved filter now shows in the pulldown menu moving forward and can be selected as needed. This process can be repeated as necessary.
If an existing filter needs to be updated or deleted, use the provided buttons under "Analytics Filters."
Preset filters are available for all tabs in the Analytics module.

Updating Data

Data in visual graphs is cached for one hour for each user and preset for faster access. PlexTrac provides the ability to manually update the cache in a dashboard by clicking Update at the bottom of the filter column. A time stamp reveals the date and time that the information presented was aggregated.
