YARA matches are displayed in the matches table. The matches table includes information about each match and can be sorted and filtered based on various characteristics of the matches.

The default matches table view will display ten matches per page and is sorted in reverse chronological order based on the last time each match was observed.

Pages in the table can be navigated using the page selection controls located below the table.

1. Match Details
