Build List View

In the Build List view, you can enter or import values to create a list and save or reset the values. You can use lists when you are writing reporting rules to simplify the process of specifying values in the rule.


This workflow shows the procedure to define lists or list groups. You can set access control at the list or list group level so that only users with specific roles can access the lists.

You must ensure that Reporting Engine is configured on the NetWitness.
