How to use filters in the Asset Inventory app

There are two ways to filter the thousands of digital assets (i.e. Entities) you may have from the Asset Inventory app:

  • Quick Filters by Class and/or Type
  • Granular Filters by Properties

Quick Filters by Class and/or Type

You can quickly filter the entities/assets by Class, by selecting one or multiple of the icons that represent each class. The tooltip displays the class label when you move over it:

The Class of an entity is an abstract label that defines what the entity is within the concept of security operations. For more details, see the JupiterOne Data Model documentation.

Once you select one or more class, you can further filter the entities/assets by Type:

The Type of an entity represents the specific type of entity as defined by its source. For more details, see the JupiterOne Data Model documentation.

You can also expand the Class filter to get a more detailed, dashboard-like view of the entites/assets with a count for each class.

The data will respond correspondingly to the selection in the table below the quick filters. Note the pagination control at the bottom of the table:

Selecting an entity in the table will bring up its detailed properties in a side panel on the right.

Granular Filters by Properties

You can apply granular filters by selecting specific property values.

Open up the Filter Panel using the control icon near the top right corner:

Look for the property or properties you’d like to filter on to select one or multiple values to apply the filter. Clicking on a previously selected value from the property dropdown box will unselect it.

Tips: We recommend selecting Class/Type using the quick filter first, before apply more granular property filters. This will reduce the number of properties/values and make it a lot easier for selection.
