USM Anywhere enables you to make the sensor Sensors are deployed into an on-premises, cloud, or multi-cloud environment to collect log and other security-related data. This data is normalized and then securely forwarded to USM Anywhere for analysis and correlation. drop future events Any traffic or data exchange detected by AT&T Cybersecurity products through a sensor, or through external devices such as a firewall. that match the rule. These future events are neither correlated nor stored. Through these rules, you are able to define which event data you are going to store in USM Anywhere. You pay for the data you use, so discarded event information is not stored and does not count against the service-level tier of an account. This rule runs on a sensor and control node. The action of this rule has no recovery, so you must be careful when creating the rule. This action can cause a user-generated data loss environment.

Note: Filtering rules are not retroactive. The rule applies to future items and it does not apply to previous items, even if those items follow the rule.

Important: You can't use a correlation list when you create a filtering rule.

To create a rule for filtering events

  1. Go to Settings > Rules > Orchestration Rules.
  2. Select Create Orchestration Rule > Filtering Rules.

  3. Click Add Condition and select the property values you want to include in the rule to create a matching condition.
  4. Note: If the field is related to the name of a country, you should use the country code defined by the ISO 3166.

    Note: The Sources or Destinations field needs to match the universally unique identifier (UUID) of the event or alarm. You can use the Source Name or Destination Name field instead.

    Important: Instead of using the equals and equals, case insensitive operators for array fields, AT&T Cybersecurity recommends the use of the in or contains operators.

    Note: If you need to add a property value that maps with a property key, you need to know the mapping of the field. See Determining the Mapping of a Field for more information.

  5. (Optional.) Click Add Group to group your conditions.
  6. Note: See Operators in the Orchestration Rules for more information.

    Note: The current rule box shows you the syntax of your rule, and the rule verification box checks that syntax before saving the rule.

To test the match criteria of a filter rule

  1. Create a test event suppression rule.
  2. Add the desired match criteria for the target filter rule action.
  3. Enable the rule.
  4. Go to Settings > Rules > Orchestration Rules to verify that the rule is working as desired.
  5. In the All Orchestration Rules page, click the icon of the filter rule you want to test.
  6. The events, which triggered the rule and are suppressed, display.

  7. Create a filtering rule with the exact same match criteria if the event information displayed is correct. If the event information displayed is not correct, modify the suppression rule match criteria until the correct values are found that suppresses the correct event data. Then generate the filter rule.
