There are currently five available options for detection rules in Reflex: Match, Threshold, Field Comparison, New Terms, and Indicator Match. Each rule type requires a valid base query to utilize if their own ways.
This page will describe these detection rule types in depth as well as provide examples for usage.
This rule type is the simplest such that it alerts on events where a particular field (or fields) matches a particular value (or doesn't match).
- Only a valid base query is needed for this detection type
Threshold detections will only alert when the number of detections exceeds or is below a specified threshold.
- Group By: specify a specific value to apply the threshold to the detection
- Operator: define how the threshold is met
- Threshold: the number of items required for the detection to fire
- Alarm per Field Value: threshold will apply to single distinct values
- Dynamic Threshold: will determine a threshold automatically based on a baseline
- Max Events: how many events to return when the threshold is met
Field Comparison detection types are similar to Match detections, but provide more flexibility by allowing you to specify how fields should or shouldn't match.
- Source Field: the source field to compare against the target
- Operator: how to compare the fields (equal, not equal, more than, less than, etc.)
- Target Field: the target field to compare against the source
New Terms detection types will look for new field values based on a predetermined baseline.
Indicator Match detection types are triggered when a base query matches field value information provided in an Intel List.
