Active Filters: Overview

High-level overview of active filters in RiskSense.

Filters provide RiskSense users with helpful ways of sorting findings and organizing scanner data. Active filters are a key component of sorting findings and vulnerabilities. Setting an active filter lets you take data in RiskSense and narrow your scope based on your select filters. You can set up several active filters at the same time. Clicking the Active Filter (Active Filter - Small) button on a list view allows you to set an active filter and view all filters currently applied to the list view.

There are two methods to determine if active filters are applied to your current data set.

Active Filter Bar: When filters are applied to a data set, they appear next to the page breadcrumbs in the active filter bar. This bar indicates that the provided criteria are filtering the data set. To remove a filter criterion, click the X button next to the filter criterion you want to remove. If this filter bar is not present, filters are not applied to the current data set.
