Download events

You can display and download large numbers of the events associated with each threat detection. This lets you search across a broad set of the data stored in your Google Security Operations account to hunt for security issues.

Display and download events

Complete the following steps to display and download the events associated with a detection:

  1. In the navigation bar, click Detection > Rules & Detections.

  2. Click the Rules Dashboard tab.

  3. Click a rule to open the Rule Detections view.

  4. Select a Detection from the Detections list and expand the sample events list by clicking the arrow to the left. There is a limit of up to 10 event samples for each event variable defined in the rule. Event samples past this limit will be omitted. The Download as CSV option appears if event samples were omitted from your detection. A maximum of 100,000 events can be downloaded. The event samples are sorted by event timestamp in the UI. Google does not guarantee any sorting of event samples when reading detections from Google Security Operations APIs.
