Viewing Master Definition Sections
Each master definition type is listed along the left side. Using the link on the title of each will open its section, and, in many cases, expand further submenu options.
Image: The master definition types are organized in the left side menu with submenus below some sections.
Each section lists the ID number (useful for referencing system variable that may have been renamed in your instance), name, active status, link to view its usage, and button to delete the item. Some sections will also show columns and controls that apply only to that type.
Adding Master Definition Items
Each master definition type view has a Create New button available to add a new item. After clicking or tapping on the button, a new row will appear for the new item at the top of the list. Use the edit icon to rename the new item.

You can then manually reorder the item, change its active status, or perform any other editing actions.
Editing Master Definition Items
Image: Many actions are common across all master definition sections. See individual master definition type help topics for additional action options.
Master definition type sections have a few actions common to all types, including the ability to:
- Filter the list of items by name
- Manually reorder items
- Edit the Name of the item
- Check or uncheck the Active status
- View the Usage of the item in events, searches, etc.
- Delete the item (if it is not being used)
Force Delete the item (even if it's being used) and remove all references (available only to Administrators in the (-1) security group)
- Use the Create New button to add a new item
Use Caution With Force Delete
The option to "force delete" a master definition item should be taken with care. Be advised that some searches may no longer function as expected until you edit them to remove references.
Tip: Manually Reordering Master Definition Items
Image: Drag the row to manually set the display order.
The default display order for master definition items is to show them in alphabetical order. You can manually reorder the lists (which may affect the order item types, such as custom attributes, will display on the Event Form) by clicking on the row, dragging up or down, then dropping the item between rows. Use the Save Sort button to save the order.
Note: If you previously depended on the application to automatically sort required custom attributes to the top of the section in the Event Form, you must now manually set the order.
Hiding Master Definition Items
Image: Some types have an Abridged checkbox available to hide master definition items.
Many types of Master Definitions feature the ability to add or remove items from "abridged lists." Use these lists to hide items from users with limited permissions. Look for the Abridged column when available.
For permissions, see Permissions in Series25 Group Administration.
