Customizing the display of the event list in the TrueSight console
You can customize the display of the event list on the Events page to suit your event monitoring and management preferences. These settings are individual, user-based preferences and apply to all pages where the Events page is used, like Device Details and Monitor Details.
To customize the display of the events list, on the Events page, click theicon, make the desired changes, and click Save to apply the settings.
The following video (4:01) illustrates how to set event preferences settings to customize the display.
The following video displays screens from an earlier version, however, the information provided in the video is still relevant to the current version of the product.
The following table describes the settings that you can change:
|Show confirmation for:||Confirmation window for the selected event operation, before you run the event operation.|
All Event Operations: A confirmation is displayed before you run any event operation.
Close event only: A confirmation is displayed only when you close events. No confirmation is displayed for other event operations.
None: No confirmation is displayed before you run any event operation.
|Maximum number of events to display||Maximum number of events to display on the Events page. When the number of events exceeds this value and cannot be displayed, review and refine the event filters or search for the event.|
|Number of events to download initially||Optimum number of events to download initially to stabilize response time. When you scroll down to view more events, the same number of events are downloaded and added to the events list.|
|Maximum multi-events to perform action on|
Maximum number of events that you can select to perform a common action on.
For more information about performing action on multiple events, see Performing event operations in the TrueSight console.

Controls the loading of the data on the event page. This creates a separate scroll bar apart from the browser scroll bar.
By default, it is set to Off.

|Show internal names of event attributes in tool tips||Enabled: The internal names of event attributes are displayed when you hover over the attribute.|
Disabled: The labels (display names) of event attributes are displayed when you hover over the attribute.
|Show severity, priority, and status icons||Enabled: Icons that indicate the status, severity, and priority of events are displayed.|
Disabled: Text (without icons) that indicate the status, severity, and priority of events are displayed.
|Show row numbers||Enabled: A row number is displayed sequentially for each event row.|
Disabled: No row number is displayed for an event row.
|Show check box for event selection|
Enabled: A check box is displayed for each event row that enables you to select a row.
|Show severity colors for:|
Highlights the event rows according to the severity levels of the events.
For more information about the severity levels and colors, see the Event severity section in Understanding event states.
Note: This setting does not apply for events that have a Closed or Blackout status. Icons and text on these event rows are displayed in gray with a white background.
|Show users from the selected user group for the 'Assign To' operation|
Enabled: Displays the Default User Group list. The user groups displayed are directly related to the logged-in user. Only if the logged-in user is a member of a particular user group, that user group is displayed in the list. The selected user group value appears as the default selection at the time of assigning an event. With the result, while assigning an event, you can select a user from a limited list of users associated with that user group. Note that if a user gets disconnected from a user group (of which the user was originally a member), you will see the user group default selection is set to a blank value.
Disabled: Results in having to scroll through a list of all users while assigning an event. If this setting is disabled, you cannot select a user group at the time of assigning an event. By default, this setting is disabled.
For more information, see Performing event operations in the TrueSight console.
