The navigation bar allows you to control the graph in the following ways:

  1. Move the graph view in the desired direction.

  2. Switch between:

    • Hand: Allows you to move the graph, regardless of the selected elements.

  3. Allows you to change the zoom level.

The toolbar

The toolbar contains functions that control the files, the layout, and the management and display of nodes in the graph.

For more information, see Using the toolbar.

The sidebar

The sidebar allows you to change the following settings:

  • Lenses: You can add lenses, change the selected lens, remove one or more lenses, and modify lens settings. For more information, see Using lenses in the Graph Browser.

  • Expansion: You can select or deselect the dashboard filters and the simple or aggregated relations. For more information, see Expanding the graph.

  • Selection: The selected graph items are shown in a grid. You can hide columns, sort rows in a different order, or sort them by type and so on. For more information, see Selecting graph tables.

  • Cards: You can apply special views on the currently-selected nodes. For more information, see Using cards in the graph.

Cloning a Graph Browser

During an investigation, a user might find that they want to diverge from the analysis that the current Graph Browser is performing.

  1. Click Clone in the top-right menu.

  2. Specify a title for the cloned copy.

  3. Click Confirm Clone.

This creates a new Graph Browser with all of the same configurations, in which you can perform an extended analysis without modifying the original version.
