Artifact Overview


This article provides information about the artifact field in the Event Management panel.



Logsign creates a case for the security incidents it detects and allows you to investigate them from the Event Management panel. Collecting the findings related to the detected incident requires serious effort in terms of reporting, dashboarding, and analysis.

In the Event Management - Artifact field, Logsign shares the findings related to the incident with you in categories such as Intelligence Map, Entities, Response, Incidents, Last Triggered Alert, Events, Networks, Process, File, DNS, and Identity.

Let's illustrate with an example scenario;

When an alarm is triggered for the IP address, we can find the column to which the IP belongs in the artifact in the event case panel as 'action.object'. We can find the user, file, hash, and network activities that may be associated with this IP address under the artifact.

When you access the Event Management panel, the findings related to the incident are shared with you in the Artifacts Monitor. You can investigate user, source, URL, IP, file, and hash activities within the findings related to the incident as a widget.



We need to go to the Artifact section to examine the detailed information.



You can review all the findings related to the event from the section shown below. The objects within the artifact include the users, IP addresses, and sources that Logsign associates with the event. In addition to these, you can also manually add your own findings and improve the contents by using the + Artifact button.


Based on the above image, we can say that the IPs,, and are associated with the event.


Let's explain this situation with another example, in the above image we can say that the adminlgs user is associated with the event. We can also say that the source or domain addresses of and are also related to the event.

Further down the panel, there are event actions that are sorted according to the timeline.
