Custom detectors can add context and exclusion rules on top of pre-built Nightfall detectors, or can be built off your own custom regular expressions.

Be aware that you may not have two detectors based on the same Nightfall data type within the same detection rule.

A full glossary of Nightfall's prebuilt detectors can be found in the Detector Glossary
