Finding, Filtering and Sorting Assets

How to find desired assets in the Websites, Server and Auto Discovery view using the filters and search field.

From the Websites, Servers or Auto Discovery view of Delve, you can use a free-form search field and an extensive set of filters to easily find and sort assets based on their characteristics.

Both views present a list of filters with checkboxes on the left side, a search field at the top of the view and a list of assets presented in sortable columns.

Assets are presented with their associated tags: the dotted line tags correspond to user-defined tags in Delve (see Creating new tags), the solid line tags correspond to auto-tags, i.e. those were automatically applied based on asset characteristics (using a tooltip to describe the type of tags such as Edge Service name, response code, known responses, etc.).

Using the search field (From the Website, Servers or Auto Discovery View)

At the top of each of the views, you will find a free-form search field where you can find assets by URL (Websites), IP/Hostname (Servers). The search query will trigger as soon as three or more characters are typed in.

You can use basic search terms, but a more complete search grammar supporting Advanced search queries is also supported.

Using filters

On the left side of the Websites and Servers view, use a combination of filters to better refine the assets displayed.

When making selections in different filter sections, filtering will be exclusive: assets must match both filters to be displayed. Selections in the same filter section is additive: assets matching at least one of the filters will be displayed.

Websites view filters

  • Schedule - Filter assets based on their scheduling (daily, weekly, etc.)
  • Tags - Filter assets based on their tags (see Creating new tags for information on tag management)
  • Response Code - Filter assets based on their HTTP response code (according to RFC7231)
  • Content Type - Filter assets based on their HTTP content type header field
  • Status - Filter assets based on their status, whether they're new (unverified) or verified (see Manual asset addition for more information)
  • Supported Scheme - Filter assets based on whether they're accessible through HTTP and/or HTTPS
  • Known Response - Filter assets based on the type of response/page they present, compared to known templates in Delve database (Hypervisor page, Default web server page, etc.)
  • Creation - Filter assets based on their creation type: autodiscovered or manually entered
  • Edge Service - Filter assets based on the Edge Service through which they are accessible (see Reaching firewalled & internal assets)

Servers view filters

  • Schedule - Filter assets based on their scheduling (daily, weekly, etc.)
  • Tags - Filter assets based on their tags (see Creating new tags for information on tags management)
  • Open Ports - Filter assets based on their open ports. This filter only shows the 10 most commonly exposed services and open ports in the server view. For more details on open ports for a single server, please consult the Report detail view
  • OS Type - Filter assets based on their Operating System type.
  • OS Family - Filter assets based on their Operating System family.
  • Creation - Filter assets based on their creation type: autodiscovered or manually entered.
  • Edge Service - Filter assets based on the Edge Service through which they are accessible (see Reaching firewalled & internal assets).
To simplify finding newly discovered assets, you can filter by creation date or filter by "auto-discovered" assets using the filters given on the left.

Auto Discovery view filters

  • Schedule - Filter assets based on their scheduling (daily, weekly, etc.)
  • Tags - Filter assets based on their tags (see Creating new tags for information on tags management)
  • Edge Service - Filter assets based on the Edge Service through which they are accessible (see Reaching firewalled & internal assets).

Using columns to sort assets

At the top of the list of assets in the Websites and Servers view you can click certain columns headings to sort the list in ascending or descending order based on the specific column value.

  • Address - Sort the assets by name (websites) and/or IP (servers)
  • Vulnerabilities - Sort the assets by the combined weight of their vulnerabilities (this uses an internal scoring system not directly visible through the interface)
  • Last Report - Sort the assets by the last complete report date
  • Creation Date - Sort the assets by their creation date in Delve
