Edit Resources and Dependencies

 

Users can edit Paragon Insights-generated (system) resources, user-generated resources, and dependencies from the Resources page (Configuration > Resources). If you want to restore original configuration of system resources, you can restore by uploading the configuration files. Configuration files for system resources are available on Paragon Insights server and GitHub. You can upload resource configuration from Rules page or Playbook page. See Paragon Insights Rules and Playbooks for more information.

Note

If you edit a system resource and later restore it to the original configuration, Paragon Insights continues to display the resource status as modified.
