Um... I can't select mutliple items anymore. (Shift Select) I can Ctrl+Click to select several different items, but i can't select hundreds or thousands of items at a time.
Hopefully there's some sort of magic check box somewhere that i can check to fix this. If not i may have to revert to 2.5.2. I can't live without my shift+select. lol.
It was removed because it didn't work properly. Performing actions on objects that were shift selected could act on objects that were not in the list or not act on all the objects in the list.
The reason is that the selection was using the row number in the UI grid and there wasn't a reliable way of translating the row number of the grid to the event id in the database. The new selection model actually keeps track of the event ids selected. When you shift select over multiple grid pages you can select items that are no longer in the grid buffer and therefore we can't determine the event id.
Ah. I see.
So is there a planned fix for a future release? Is there another way of select thousands of items at once?
The reason i ask is that someone somewhere in china just ran a port scan on my firewall. I don't have event transforms setup yet to handle those kinds of things and now i have about 4000 events in the event viewer. Normally i'd just select them all and clear them. How am i to handle this now?
Not trying to be rude. I just don't have time to sit there and ctrl+click all 4000 events. Hopefully theres an easier way to handle this now that shift select is gone.
First, I haven't messed with 3.0 outside of the public demo but can't you just narrow down the events using the filter boxes and then do a Select All with the dropdown?
MattRK, the other response is entirely correct. You can set filters to get the list of events that you want/expect/need, and then do a select-all to get those events, and then you can act on them as a group. I remember some of the issues while testing the event console in 2.5.x, and there were as JP said, problems. Please let me know if this does not work, and I can try and help further.
This technique works quite well. Just filter to the events you want, then Select->All and you'll select all of those events and then you can send them to history or acknowledge them.
Thanks for the responses. Filtering and select all works well. I was just used to shift selecting.
But i agree that shift selecting should be fixed and added to a future release. It was a very helpful feature.
+1 !! __PLEASE__ fix SHIFT+SELECT. Filtering + select all + close/acknowledge does technically work, but requires far more mouse clicks than a simple shift+select. I am very lazy !! <GRIN>
