Create a Custom Indicator 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 new line. Case is insensitive.
    Multi select
    Number: Can contain any number. Default is 0.
    Role: Role assigned to the indicator, determines which users (by role) can view the indicator.
    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.
