Vendor trace view/navigation tools

In this article, we will cover the various viewing and navigational tools available to your organization when utilizing vendor trace. 

View toolbox

The view toolbox include the following navigational tools to alter the view of the vendor trace report:

Tool Description
Show Searched/All Vendors Only available when using the vendor search functionality. Allows you to toggle between seeing where the specific vendor sits in the vendor chain or the entire vendor chain.
Zoom Zoom in or out of the vendor trace report by a fixed percentage.
Collapse All Collapse trace lines in the vendor chain

Prevalence range filter

The prevalence of a vendor refers to the percentage of scans where Sourcepoint has detected the vendor across all scans configured for the scan URL. For example, a vendor with a prevalence of 25% means that Sourcepoint detected the vendor in 25% of all scans for the scan URL. 

Use the provided prevalence range filter to select the start of the range. Vendors with prevalences that are greater than or equal to the start of the prevalence range will be included in your visualization. For example, if you set the prevalence range filter to 50% then the visualization will only show vendors in the trace whose prevalences are between 50%-100%.

Expand/collapse single vendor

Vendors who trigger downstream vendors in the vendor chain can have all trace lines that originate from it collapsed by clicking the minus symbol to the right of the vendor name within the vendor trace visualization

  Note: If expanding the trace line for a single vendor in the vendor chain, the vendor trace visualization will only expand the vendors in the layer immediately after the originating vendor.
