Home Page

The Home screen displays different widgets acting as the navigation shortcuts to the other screens in the PK Protect application. By default, this screen displays five widgets. User with admin rights will be able to see the activities for all the users as well as the system level statistics.

You can customize the Home screen as per the requirement. The user can minimize, maximize, close, and change the size of the widgets. To re-size the widgets, drag the outlines with dots at the sides of widgets.

The user can also click the expand icon to hide or view the navigation panel.

The user can re-add the closed widgets by clicking Add Widget (available only after you close any widget) displayed at the top left corner on the screen. This will list the closed widgets as displayed in the screen below.

Click on the widget you want to re-add on the Home screen. The widgets are described below:

    1. Click the Preferences icon or User Preferences option under the <Username> at the bottom of the navigation panel.

    2. A dialog box will appear.

    3. Select the total number of records you want to display.

    4. Click New Filter. A dialog box will appear.


      The fields are described below:

      1. Tab: Select the tab where you want to apply the filter. For Example, Results, Detailed Results, Skipped Results etc.

      2. Logical Operator: Select the operator from the drop-down. For example, No Operator, AND etc.

        The operators are described below:

        1. No Operator: You can select this option when you don’t want to use any logical operator.

        2. AND: This operator compares two or more conditions in an expression and returns true when all the conditions are true and returns false when any of the condition is false.

        3. OR: This operator compares two or more conditions in an expression and returns true when any of the condition is true and returns false when all the conditions are false.

      3. Filter Level: You can specify the filters at user or system level.

        1. User level: The users can create their own specific filters. These filters will be visible only to the super admin and the user who has created the filter.

        2. System level: An admin/super admin can create both type of filters. The filters created at system level will be visible to all the users in the system, once defined.

      4. Meta Query: You use Meta Query to create expressions that find specific data. Meta Query will be parsed into an actual query. To create a query, remove the space and special characters from the column headers listed in the Tab drop-down and use relational operators such as, ‘=’ (Equals), ‘!=’ (Not Equals), < (Less Than), > (Greater Than), and Like.

        E.g., if we want to add a filter where Sensitive Type should contain address and table/view should be equal to Base table. Then query will be: SensitiveType Like ‘Address’ AND Database = ‘Contact’ Click Save.

    5. Click Save.

    6. Edit: Click Edit icon under the Actions columns. This will allow you to edit the filter details.

    7. Delete: Check the checkbox corresponding to the filter you want to delete and click Delete.
