In card view, you can add additional search fields to the Search interface. This allows quick visualization of your preferred fields from the main page of the Search interface for each session.
Adding custom fields to the card view
Click for more details and select Customize Card Fields from the list.
Figure 258: Search — Customize Card Fields
Select fields from Collapsed top and Collapsed bottom and the fields will be added as separate fields to the collapsed view of each session.
The fields you select from Expanded top and Expanded bottom will be added to the expanded view of each session as shown in the figure below.
Figure 259: Search — Preview
NOTE: Some fields may not be available for every session. When the field is not available, for example, if you have data recorded by SPP, the field will be empty.

The flow view allows you to:
Quickly visualize the distribution of the sessions based on their various metadata, such as, client address, username, protocol, verdict, server address, and One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Analytics (SPA) score.
The metadata of the sessions are presented as vertical bars and each bar represents the proportional value of the data.
The Verdict column shows that most of the sessions failed, a large number were accepted, and the rest of the sessions fall into the category of AUTH_FAIL, and TERMINATED.

See at a glance the relationship between various metadata and identify patterns in user behavior.
You want to have an overview of activities where access was denied.
A quick look at the Verdict column shows that there were several accesses where the authentication failed (AUTH_FAIL) and the lines from the AUTH_FAIL field point to several server addresses.

Use it interactively to drill down further on information.
To drill down on information, click on an item, then click Search.
TIP: To exclude an item, press Ctrl while clicking the item.
You want to investigate if there were any unusual activities. To take a closer look, in the Analytics Score column, click Unusual, then click Search.
The flow view now only displays the unusual session activities. You can further narrow your search as required.

The following describes how to assign users to access sessions only for connections for which they are granted permission.
Users need the Search privilege to access the Search interface.
Assigning the Search privilege to a user on the Users & Access Control > Appliance Access page, automatically enables the Search in all connections privilege, and grants the user access to every session, even if the user is not a member of the groups listed in the Access Control option of the particular connection policy.
You have created a user for which you want to assign the search privilege. For more information, see Creating local users in One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS).
You have created a usergroup. For more information, see Managing local user groups.
To assign users to access sessions only for connections for which they are granted permission
Navigate to Users & Access Control > Appliance Access.
Figure 265: Users & Access Control > Appliance Access — Configuring search privileges
Assign the Search privilege to your usergroup as described in Assigning privileges to user groups for the One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS) web interface.
Deselect the Search in all connections privilege so that users can access sessions only for connections for which they are granted permission.
To grant permission to a specific connection, navigate to the Connections page of the traffic (for example to SSH Control > Connections), and select the connection policy to modify.
Figure 266: <Protocol name> Control > Connections > Access Control — Configuring search privileges
Navigate to Access Control and click .
Enter the name of the usergroup whose members are permitted to access the Search interface into the Authorizer Group field. This group must exist on the Users & Access Control > Local User Groups page.
Usernames, the names of user lists, and the names of usergroups are case sensitive.
Set the permissions of the usergroup.
If the usergroup can authorize (that is, enable) and audit (that is, monitor in real-time and download the audit trails) the sessions, select Permission > Follow&Authorize.
If the usergroup can only audit the sessions but cannot authorize, select Permission > Follow.
NOTE: If the Client user is > Member of field is set, the auditor can only monitor the sessions of the specified usergroup. However, if Client user is > Member of field is set, the Auditor cannot access the Search page. To avoid this problem, add another Access Control rule for the Authorizer Group without setting the Client user isfield.
The admin user of One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS) can audit and authorize every connection.
Users with the relevant privileges can now access the sessions for which they are granted permission. If users do not have the required permission to access sessions, a warning message is displayed and no session is visible as shown below:
