How to filter objects in NTA web-based reports

Updated: October 4, 2018


When creating web-based reports, you need to specify the objects to report on. This article describes the wildcards and patterns you can use to filter in your reports and limitations of the search.

You can use the filters both in advanced SWQL queries and in the Dynamic Query Builder.


  • NTA 4.4 and later


When adding content to a web-based report, you can use the % wildcard to filter by IPv4 address.

Input Example

In the Dynamic Query Builder, you don't need to use any wildcards, just select the correct operator - starts with or ends with.

The % wildcard to represent a part of one or more octets.

You must specify all 4 octets, using a number, or a wildcard.
