For users to quickly assess and respond to events when they are received in Security Desk, you can assign different colors to Security Center events.

What you should know

Event colors are used as visual cues in the Security Desk. When a system event is generated, the event color is indicated in the event list and in the canvas tile.

If you have a large system, this helps you focus on events that are more important. For example, you can use red to indicate a critical event (someone attempted to use a stolen credential), and blue to indicate a less critical event (Access granted).


  1. Open the System task, click the General settings view, and click the Events page.
  2. Next to an event in the Event colors tab, select a color from the Color drop-down list.
  3. Click Apply.
