How to change values in Watchlist


I have the following situation I want to create a rule from a watchlist that have machines names like "pcexample$" or "pczzyy$" this list is populated with events in Active Directory. I want to correlate this watchlist with events that i see in another data source, but in this data source the machine names are like "PCEXAMPLE" or "PCZZYY". How can i transform the data in a watchlist from "pcexample$" to "PCEXAMPLE"?

Hi - Watchlists are case sensitive.  The best thing to do would be to open the Watchlist, go to values and export the data to a file. You can run a convert to uppercase (several editor do that) then add that as a new Watchlist.  I would then use both Watchlists in your rule, to catch both possibilities.

Re: How to change values in Watchlist

Hi Layer0,

you can extract all of your Hostname from the ESM. The thing is you need the right regex string.

Watchlist --> Add --> Dynamic--> Source --> ESM String --> your Regex --> value -->

Type --> Host

(Regex: its easy to regex the ESM string if you now a prequel from you hostnames like "xyz" or something else.

Your company Hostnames are like xyz1234

So you have a regex with ([xyz\d{0-3}]+)
