General artifacts are artifacts that WildFire associates with both samples and sessions. For example, you can use the artifact type Domain to search based on domains found in samples and sessions.
Some general artifacts are tag-related. If you search with a tag-related artifact, the search results display all samples that have one or more tags that meet the search criteria, and their related sessions.
The following general artifact types refer to private session information: Domain, Email Address, Filename, IP Address, and URL. If any of your private tags use these artifact types as tag conditions, you cannot make these tags public.
