View and manage a single endpoint

You can use Reporting to view details for a single endpoint, manage the endpoint, deploy actions to the endpoint, and more.

The Endpoint Details page contains multiple Tanium-managed tabs. In addition to the Tanium-managed tabs, you can create additional custom tabs to add to the Endpoint Details page.

You can access details for an endpoint through the following methods:

  • When you view, create, or edit a report that contains the Computer Name column, click next to an endpoint in the column, and then click View Details.
  • From the Tanium Home page, navigate to the Search Endpoints tab, enter the name of an endpoint, and then click an endpoint in the Computer Name column.
  • From the Question Results page where the Computer Name column appears, click next to an endpoint in the column, and then click View Details.
  • Other Tanium modules might link to the Endpoint Details page when Reporting is installed.

To access the Endpoint Details page, you must have the Reporting Dashboard read permission. See User role requirements.

View endpoint details

When you view, create, or edit a report that contains the Computer Name column, you can click an endpoint in the column to view details for the endpoint, manage the endpoint, and deploy an action to it.

  1. Open a report that contains the Computer Name column.
  2. Click Endpoint Details next to the name of an endpoint in the Computer Name column.
    An Endpoint Details dialog opens with basic details for the endpoint. If multiple endpoints have the same Computer Name, click Previous Previous or Next Next in the Multiple Results Found banner to find the details for a specific endpoint.
  3. Click View Details to open the Endpoint Details page that shows the endpoint view with detailed information.
  4. View the contents on each tab, and manage the tabs as needed.

    Use the and controls to expand and collapse the page header and tab headers as needed.

    1. Click Edit next to the tab name.
    2. Select a Content Set and then click Save.


Create custom tab

You can create your own tabs to appear on the Endpoint Details page.

To create custom tabs, you must have the Reporting Dashboard write permission. See User role requirements.

  1. Open the Endpoint Details page for the endpoint. See View endpoint details.
  2. Click Add Tab +.
  3. Enter a name for the tab, assign the tab to a content set, optionally add a description, and then click Create.
    • The tab name can have up to a maximum of 255 characters.

    • Only content sets to which you have permission to create tabs appear as options.
  4. When finished, click Save.

Reporting saves the tab and opens the tab in edit mode.

To quickly create similar tabs, you can clone an existing tab and then edit the new tab. To clone a tab, open the tab, click Clone Tab. Edit any basic settings for the tab and click Save.

When the number of tabs exceeds the size of the tab header, the header shows some tabs and adds the remaining tabs to a More menu. You can reorder the tabs to change which tabs appear in the tab header and which tabs appear in the More menu. To reorder tabs, click Edit in the tab header and drag the tabs in the desired order.

Edit tab

After you create a tab, you can edit the tab to add, remove, and reorder sections and panels.

For Tanium Managed tabs, you can edit the assigned content set. No other fields are editable. You can clone any tab, including tabs managed by Tanium, and then edit the new tab.

  1. Open the Endpoint Details page for an endpoint. See View endpoint details.
  2. Open the tab that you want to edit, and then click Edit.
  3. Edit the tab as needed.
    • The tab editor contains a grid layout to assist when you resize and move panels within the grid.

    • To move a section, select Reorder Sections, and then click and drag sections in the desired order.
    • To move a panel, click the white space in the panel, and then drag the panel to the desired location. When you release the mouse button, the panel snaps to the nearest coordinates on the design grid.
      If you resize or move panels in a section, the section might automatically resize vertically to match the largest height of panels.
    • To resize a panel, click and drag any panel corner or panel edge midpoint. When you release the mouse button, the panel snaps to the nearest coordinates on the design grid. The data that appears in the panel depends on the allocated size; to show more data, enlarge the panel.
    • When you delete a section, any panels in the section are also deleted.
    • When you delete a tab, any panels and sections in the tab are also deleted.
  4. Click Save when you finish editing the tab.

Any changes that you make to the tab are not saved until you click Save.

Add sections

A section is a collapsible division on a tab that you can use to group panels. A tab can have multiple sections, and each section can contain multiple panels. A tab requires at least one section; if you add a panel to a tab without a section, the dashboard creates a section for the panel.

  1. Open the Endpoint Details page for an endpoint. See View endpoint details.
  2. Open the tab that you want to edit, and then click Edit.
  3. At the top of the tab, select Add > Add Section.

    Reporting adds the section to the bottom of the dashboard.

  4. Scroll to the bottom of the dashboard to find the new section.
  5. (Optional) Enter a name for the section. Section names have a maximum of 255 characters.

Add text panels

A text panel contains static text that provides context to the tab.

  1. Open the Endpoint Details page for an endpoint. See View endpoint details.
  2. Open the tab that you want to edit, and then click Edit.
  3. You have the following options:

    • At the top of the tab, select Add > Add Text Panel to add a text panel to the bottom section on the dashboard.
    • In a section, click Add > Add Text Panel to add a panel to that section.
  4. Use the Edit Text dialog to compose the text in the panel:
    • Use the dropdown menu to select the syntax of selected text, or to enter new text with that syntax.
    • To add a link, click Add Link . Enter the text to display and then enter a link; overwrite the default # as needed. The link can be absolute or relative. Click Save when done. The icon that renders with the link signifies if the link is external or links to another page in the Tanium Console.




      For security, a confirmation prompt appears when a user clicks an external link in the Tanium Console. If the link goes to another page in the Tanium Console, the link renders as static text if the user does not have access to the linked page.

    • To add metrics to the panel, click Add Metric . Enter a name and value for the metric, and then specify any other optional fields. Click Apply to add the metric to the text panel and to close the Edit Metric dialog. Click Add to add the metric to the text panel but keep the Edit Metric dialog open so you can add another metric. To close the Edit Metric dialog without adding a metric, click Cancel on the Edit Panel dialog.

      To include multiple metrics in a horizontal row, select the Metric Set option from the dropdown menu on the Edit Panel dialog. A shaded row appears in the dialog. Click the row, and then click Add Metric . When you add metrics, click Add to add another metric to the row.

  5. Click Done.
