Managing WriteupsDB
This page explains how to create, edit, and delete a WriteupsDB repository.

Getting Started

PlexTrac provides two methods to view writeups from the WriteupsDB module:
  1. 1.
    A list of all writeups that can be searched and filtered by clicking the Writeups tab.
2. A list of containers to better categorize and manage writeups as desired. The containers can be viewed by clicking the Repositories tab. By default, PlexTrac provides a container called "Default Repository" that contains any existing writeups.
Repositories can only be created and not copied.

Creating a WriteupsDB Repository

Step 1: Navigate to the Content Library menu option and select WriteupsDB.
Step 2: Click New Repository.
Step 3: Fill out the required information (marked by an asterisk), add an optional description, select the desired security access for the repository, and click Create.

Managing Repository Settings

Users with permissions will see a Users & Permissions button at the top of the page, indicating permission to manage repository settings. Repository settings can be updated at any time by clicking Repository Settings at the top of the page.

Deleting a Repository

This action will delete the repository and all writeups within it permanently for all users.
A repository can be deleted two different ways:
  1. 1.
    Click the three dots in the repository card.
2. Click the repository, go to Repository Settings at the top of the page, and when the modal appears, click the Delete Repository button found at the bottom of the modal.
A warning message will appear asking for validation. Click Delete Repository to continue.
