Filters and layout customization

The ESET Security Management Center Web Console allows you to customize the layout of displayed items in the main sections (e.g. Computers, Tasks, etc.) in several ways:

Add filter and filter presets

To add filtering criteria, click Add filter and select item(s) from the list. Enter the search string(s) into the filter field(s). Active filters are highlighted in blue.

Filters can be saved to your user profile so that you can use them again in the future. Under Presets, the following options are available:

Filter sets

Your saved filters, click one to apply it. The applied filter is denoted with a apply_default check mark. Select Include visible columns, sorting and paging to save these parameters to the preset.

save_filter-set Save filter set

Save your current filter configuration as a new preset. Once the preset is saved, you cannot edit the filter configuration in the preset.

manage_filter_sets Manage filter sets

Remove or rename existing presets. Click Save to apply the changes to presets.

clear_filter_values Clear filter values

Click to remove only the current values from the selected filters. Saved presets will remain unchanged.

remove_filters Remove filters

remove_unused_filters Remove unused filters

access_group The Access Group filter button allows users to select a static group and filter viewed objects according to the group where they are contained.

You can use tags for filtering the displayed items.

Side panel layout

Click theicon_more_verticalicon next to the section name and adjust the side panel layout using the context menu (available options may vary based on the current layout):

collapse_menu Hide side panel

expand_menu Show side panel

icon_groups Groups

icon_groups_and_tags Groups and Tags

icon_tags Tags

If Groups are visible, you can select also one of these options:

icon_section_expand Expand All

icon_section_collapse Collapse All

Manage the main table

Click the column header to sort table rows based on data in the selected column.

One click or two clicks result in ascending (A-Z, 0-9) or descending (Z-A, 9-0) sorting. A small arrow before the column header indicates that sorting has been applied.

Sorting applied in one column triggers a multi-sorting mode - When you apply sorting to another column, it respects the existing sorting and index numbers appear to indicate the order in which you have applied the sorting.

Click the column header again (once/twice if ascending/descending sorting has been applied) to remove the sorting based on the column.




1 primary sorting - Computer Name column: ascending sorting applied.

2 secondary sorting - Status column: descending sorting applied.

Click the gear_icon gear icon to manage the main table:


edit_default Edit columns - Use the wizard to adjust (add_new_defaultadd, remove_defaultremove, icon_apply_later_defaulticon_apply_sooner_defaultreorder) the displayed columns. You can also use drag-and-drop to adjust the columns.


icon_fit_width Auto-fit columns - Automatically adjust columns width.


Export table as - Export the table as a report in your desired format. You can choose from .pdf, .ps or .csv. CSV is suitable only for table data and uses ; (semicolon) as a delimiter.

Save a report template - Create a new report template from the table.
