no rule assignment in active channel
we define a malware detection rule, then when we try to assign this detection rule, but in active channel, under attributes or filter tab, there is no field to assign rule.
also in filter tab, we can define a condition, in stead of define a new rule, can we define the condition in active channel to detect malarware. I'm a bit confused about difference between condition and rule
If you want to see the triggered alerts in an Active Channel you need to add the at least the following
Type = Correlation
Generator URI startswith [folder where the rule or rules resides in]
An Active Channel is meant to be used to view events (base, aggregated, correlation etc..) and thus has no correlation function. A standard rule is to be used for the purpose setting up an alerting rule, a lightweight rule is often used to populate or depopulate active and/or session list and I often use them to supress follow up alerts which can sometimes overwhelm a SOC.
