Setting GSM-Level Data Filters

Within the management console, you can remove endpoints from your data that have not been seen for a set period of time, giving you the most accurate data for the current state-of-play of your deployment.

You can set a master setting in your management console to be inherited by all sites under that management console, or set sites individually. Your Dashboard and Scheduled Reports will only display endpoints which have been seen in the time period you select.

To set a management console-level data filter:

  1. Log in to the management console.

    The management console displays with the Sites tab active.

  2. Click the Settings tab.

    The Settings tab displays, with the Subscription tab active.

  3. Click the Data Filter tab.

    The system displays the Data Filter tab.

  4. From the Data Filter drop-down menu, select one of the following:
    • Show all data; this is the default setting
    • 1 month
    • 2 months
    • 3 months
    • 6 months
    • 12 months

    Note: When using the data filter settings, data is not deleted, but simply hidden from the dataset you are viewing based on your options. Selecting a different time period or selecting to display all data will always display all endpoint information relevant to your selection

  5. When you're done, click theSave button.

    The system displays a note indicating that your changes have been saved.

  6. Click the OK button.

    Note: If needed, select the Don't show this again checkbox to have the system not display the Save Successful message in future.

    The lower half of the Settings panel displays a Data Filter log, which audits and logs all changes made to data filter settings. The log includes the following information:

    • Site/Console — The site the change was applied to or the management console parent setting that was changed.
    • Setting — The option that was selected.
    • User — The name of the user who made the change.
    • Date — The date and time the change was made.
