Searching in

There is a search box in the upper left of every screen. Most screens also have a section specific search box below the menu bar. Section specific search boxes display text indicating what it will search. For example, on the Indicators screen, the section specific search box contains "Search indicator values".

For non section specific searches, when you enter a search term, it appears as part of the URL in the address bar, so you can create a bookmark.

For example:

https://<Splunk SOAR URL>/search?query=events

Search results can vary as changes in occur between visits to the search page.

Initial search results are returned without filters applied. The search results page has a row of checkboxes for the following predefined filters; Containers, Artifacts, Actions, Assets, Apps, Other, or Playbook Run to narrow your search results. Click the checkbox next the the filter you want to apply.

Search results are displayed in groups of 10 results per page. Use the menu in the bottom center of the search results page to view a up to a maximum of 100 results per page.

Available search operators in are:

  • The Boolean operator OR. Search for foo OR bar to find instances of either foo or bar in your search.
  • You can use the - character to exclude a term from your search. If you want to search for foo but not include bar, use foo -bar.
  • Quotation marks to search for exact phrases.
  • The wildcard character *. This character is only supported at the end of a string. This means you can search for foo* but not *foo or f*o.

Searching with multiple words creates an implied AND condition. For example, the term data path returns results containing both data and path. Use OR to find results containing either data or path.
