Hello,

I'm trying to eliminate the "unknown action, hosts" etc. there is some log's that don't contain an Action, so its counted as an unknown action, how could I stop this log's from being tagged at the wrong tag?

Regards

Hi @ahmadjabr,

One method is to exclude those hosts using <your search> action!=unknown otherwise if you do not want unknown in action field then you need to refine your search query so it will not generate unknown result in action but this is purely depend on your raw data and app/add-on which you are using which is generating action field.

Can you please let us know what type of logs are you searching and which app/add-on are you using to generate action field?

Thanks,
Harshil

Is this in reference to the CIM datamodels?
