Create Cases to Track Work in LogicHub

LogicHub provides an integrated case management capability for you to track activity related to investigations of threats and other security issues. You can add comments and attachments to a case and create tasks to assign to selected users or groups. Case history is automatically created for each case action.

LogicHub also supports the creation of commands to assist in case analysis. You can assign commands that have been created by a LogicHub user in your organization to a case so that the command output becomes part of the case record.

To view and manage the current list of cases, select Case Management > Cases on the side menu. Use the search field to find cases. To sort the case list by a column, click the column header. Click again to reverse the sort order.
