Another (slightly crude) way is on your fields side bar for sourcetypes that have asset/identity fields (such as user) extracted, you should see the user_ fields with each user header (example: user_email, user_nick, user_first).

For assets I believe these are the src_ fields that match the asset header such as

src_should_update

src_is_expected

The easiest way to confirm that you have identities and assets being collected and presented correctly is with the following two searches.

 

 

|`identities`
and
|`assets`

 

 

If those commands produce complete & well formatted output, then it should be working. 

If my comment helps, please give it a thumbs up!

I agree with nickhillscpl & it's one of the options listed in the doc:
