Add classification settings to existing query sessions or when creating a query session. Classification determines which sessions are associated with the query session.

Enabling the Dictionary data collector in the Monitored Systems portlet ensures the lists of usernames in the Classification tab is current. If the collector is not enabled, you can enter usernames manually by entering a match string and clicking Include.

  1. Edit or create a ruleset.
  2. From the ruleset toolbar, click Sessions.
  3. Click the Query Sessions tab.
  4. Select a query session or create one.
