WriteupsDB Home Page

The WriteUpsDB module has two tabs:

  • Repositories: Displays all writeup repositories that exist in a tenancy. A repository can be Open, Managed, or Private.

  • Writeups: Displays all writeups in various repositories, including those created manually and imported.

Repositories Tab

By default, PlexTrac provides a default repository container to contain any existing writeups. This repository can be renamed, modified, and deleted.

Once added, any extra repositories will be displayed on the page alphabetically according to their title.

Each repository card provides the following information:

  1. Repository Title

  2. Repository Type: Open, Managed, or Private

  3. Meatballs Menu: options to copy or delete the repository

  4. Repository Description

  5. Number of contained writeups

  6. Number of added users

Writeups Tab

To view all writeups for a tenancy, click the Writeups tab. This view will display useful information such as the writeup ID, parent repository, writeup severity, source, assigned tags, and the ability to edit, copy, or delete any selected writeup.

Bulk Actions

When editing multiple reports, PlexTrac offers bulk action capabilities. Bulk actions provide several advantages, including time-saving and increased efficiency by processing numerous items simultaneously.

Bulk action options appear after one or more writeups are selected by clicking the checkbox to the far left of the Title field or by clicking the box next to the column header.

Click Actions to see the list of options.

Configuring Views

The table view can be customized by clicking the column view icon to the right of the search bar.

Once clicked, a modal appears that lists all fields. To remove a column, click X within the bar.

Fields that are required do not have an X available.

When fields are removed, an "Add Column" pulldown menu is added at the bottom left of the modal to store the field. Any removed fields can be added later by clicking Add Column and selecting the field to add.

This modal represents the sequence of fields provided in the table, meaning the bar on top will be the column on the table's far left.

The order of columns can be adjusted within this modal by clicking the six dots on the left of the bar for a field and dragging the bar to the desired sequence place.

Click Save when finished.
