Error description

  • Ariel query via API that makes use of rulename function returns
    incorrect name for system rules where the name has been changed
    AND tomcat has been restarted.
    For example:
    -User modifies the name of a system rule
    -Via the QRadar API, execute an AQL query that returns
    rulename(creeventlist) as a column
    -The data returned shows the updated rule name
    After a restart of the tomcat service and the above steps are
    repeated, the data returned from the API call shows the
    original name of the system rule, despite the fact that this
    was modified to a new name.
    

Local fix

  • Use the QRadar UI to perform the required search as this issue
    appears to only affect the API searches.
