Linking a workbook to an incident/analytics rule

New Contributor

Hi all,


I would like to link a custom workbook to an incident raised by an analytics rule. By default the "incident workbook" link is shown on the incident details like this:



I would like to add another workbook to speed up investigation. As a bonus it would be great if the entities could be passed over to this workbook.

I'm not sure if this is possible, I couldn't find any information about it. Any help would be appreciated.

Please see this for the method you need:

Also see the built-in template Workbook called "Investigation Insights" as that was designed to be stand-alone or a replacement for the default one. It receives the Incident Number passed to it when you open it.

Hi Clive,

Thanks, much appreciated!

Am I correct that this is a global workbook and that it's not possible to change a workbook for a specific incident?

Correct - the name stays the same, but you can change the entire content, but if you do it will be overwritten if Microsoft make a change (and you accept the update).

You can also link a workbook from a workbook, see

Maybe you can have a control in the Workbook light up when your specific Incident is seen, and it suggests you launch the specific linked workbook, or just to open a specific Tab. Or use "make this item conditionally visible" to show extra data only when the right incident is detected.
