For example, Source IP.

  2. Click next to Value, and use the CMDB Browser to find and select the watch list you want to use.

For example, DNS Violators.

  1. Click Folder >> to select the watch list, and then click OK.
  2. Continue with creating your search criteria or rule sub pattern as you normally would.
