Correlation Lists

Role Availability Read-Only Analyst Manager

USM Anywhere enables you to create correlation lists. Use a correlation list to group values together to apply to a single rule. So instead of creating a rule for each value, you can save time and effort by creating a correlation list and using it in a rule.

When creating correlation lists for rules, you can use a standard field, such as event_name or event_description. A helpful use for correlation lists is the creation of user blacklist, whitelists, or both, like event_names. Or you can enter anything you want in the items of the correlation lists, but only up to 500 characters per item. There is a limit of 1000 items per correlation list.
