Use nDepth to create queries for all activity related to a single user or group of users on your network. This is currently the only method to perform this level of reporting and monitoring in LEM.

  1. Click Explore > nDepth.
  2. Click x in the search bar to clear all existing parameters.
  3. Locate the User Name drop-down menu in the Refine Fields list.
  4. Drag User Name into the Search Bar at the top. If you choose a different user, change the user next to the pencil icon in the search.
  5. Use this selection or change the user name in the Constant File:Success_Center/Reusable_content_-_InfoDev/LEMUserGuide_MT/0E0/0L0/Icon-pencil.png text box.

    When you change the user name:

    • Use trailing wild card characters (such as *) to search for part of a user name.
    • Avoid using leading wild card characters whenever possible.
    • Use user-defined groups or directory service groups to search for groups of users.
  6. Modify the default time frame as required.
  7. Click File:Success_Center/Reusable_content_-_InfoDev/LEMUserGuide_MT/0E0/0L0/icon-play2.png to begin your search.
