Exclude a Tag from Alerting profile

Hi,

 

How can we exclude any particular Tag from Alerting profile.

Ex: I don`t want to get a problem for "Mayana" Tag entities from default/production alerting profile.

 

Also how can stop/turn off sending the resolved email alerts for any alerting profile.

You have two options. First is defining Management zone that will exclude unnecessary entities and then use it as a filter in Alerting Profile. Second option is defining alerting profile with tag filters (you cannot use exclude rule there, so you have to do it using includes).

Hi @skrystosik 

Can you please show us the exact configuration for the !st option.

 

Im using onther way:
Exclude directly the undesired entity from the Management it self.

 

I created a tag and put all the desired entities inside.

When I create the desired MZ, I add a condition like: and tag not equals to ....

You could also look at using the negate function on the alert profile of alarms. Keep in mind tho you can only use 1 negate per alert profile. You could also set an automatic tagging rule that tags the desired entities while leaving out the undesired one(s).

Let me know if you need any other assistance.

Hi,

Is there a solution which does not involve creating more management zones or tag rules ? The utilisation of other tags or management zone induces the possibility or errors caused by object being created/removed and complexify the solution.

 

In other words, should we open another RFE to get a simple solution to this which does not imply complex redefinition of tags or MZ but simply allows a "negate" tag rule in the alert profile definition ?
