Screening Instance (Engine)

Screening Instance, also called Screening engine is a service that scans text/message(s) against the Screening Instance which gives alert or no alert result. Screening Instance manages those Screening instances/engines. Currently we only support one physical index and one Screening engine at a time which also means that at any time, there is only one Screening engine running, using the index that was last built (see Build-Index below). The last built index will override the previous one.

Clicking the Screening Instance in the left navigation menu under Screening management will make a new Screening Instance Tab folder be created in the right panel. There are 3 sub-Tab folders: Search Screening Instance, Search Result Screening Instance and Create New Screening Instance.
