Use fields to populate a report with relevant data. Fields are included with, and can be added to, report layouts.


Out-of-the-box fields that have been installed from a content pack, such as the Threat Intel Reports (BETA) content pack, are automatically added to the relevant layout. To remove the field from the layout, you need to duplicate or detach the layout. You cannot edit these fields, apart from selecting whether to add the field to Threat Intel types and whether the field is mandatory.

  1. Go to SettingsOBJECTS SETUPThreat Intel ReportsFields.

  2. Add a New Field.

  3. Configure the basic settings.



    Field Name

    A meaningful display name for the field. After you type a name, you will see below the field that the Machine name is automatically populated. The field’s machine name is applicable for searching and the CLI.


    An optional tooltip for the field.

    Field Type

    Determines the acceptable values for the field. You can add the following field types:

    Boolean (checkbox)

    Date picker

    Grid (table): Include an interactive, editable grid.

    HTML: Create and view HTML content, which can be used in any type of indicator. By default, HTML fields do not use Cortex XSOAR theme styles, but can be configured to use existing user themes.

    Long text: Long text is analyzed and tokenized, and entries are indexed as individual words, enabling you to perform advanced searches and use wildcards. Long text fields cannot be sorted and cannot be used in graphical dashboard widgets. While editing a long text field, pressing enter will create a newline. Case insensitive.

    Markdown: Add markdown-formatted text as a Template which will be displayed to users in the field after the report is created. Markdown lets you add basic formatting to text to provide a better end-user experience. A user-friendly Markdown Editor markdown_icon.png is available when you inline edit the field, which lets you easily apply styles.How to Use Markdown in Cortex XSOAR

    Multi select / Array: Includes two options a) Multi select from a pre-filled list b) An empty array field for the user to add one or more values as a comma separated list.

    Number: Can contain any number. Default is 0.

    Role: Role assigned to the threat intel report, determines which users (by role) can view the report.

    Short text: Short text is treated as a single unit of text, and is not indexed by word. Advanced search, including wildcards, is not supported. Short text fields are case sensitive by default, but can be changed to case insensitive when creating the field. While editing a short text field, pressing enter will save and close. Maximum length 60,000 characters. Recommended use is one word entries. Examples: username, email address, etc.

    Single select




    User: A user in the system.

    Case Sensitive

    If selected, the field is case sensitive, which affects how the search results for this field are returned in Cortex XSOAR.


    If selected, this field is mandatory when used in a form.


    Optional text to display in the field when it is empty. This text will appear in the layout, but not in the created report. Available for Short text, Long text, Multi select / Array, Tags.

    Script to run when field value changes

    Executes after the threat intel report is modified, instead of before. By default, the triggered script executes before report modification.
