Creating and saving alert filters

Before Symantec Management Platform version 7.1, you filtered alerts using the advanced filter functionality that was built in to the Event Console. However, you did not have the option of saving your filters. Beginning with Symantec Management Platform 7.1, you can create, save, and re-use filters.

See About Event Console alert filters.

See Filtering alerts.

To create and save alert filters

  1. In the Symantec Management Console, on the Manage menu, Events and Alerts.

  2. In the Event Console window, click the Tools icon to the right of the filters drop-down list.

  3. In the Alert Filter Settings dialog box, click Add to create a new filter.

  4. Click the default filter name to give the filter a unique, descriptive name.

  5. Under the filter name, click New filter description, and enter a description of what the alert can filter.

  6. Under Filter Condition, under This filter evaluates the following conditions, click each drop-down list to set the conditions that the new filter should evaluate.

    Click Add to add multiple conditions for a single filter to evaluate.

  7. In the right corner of the Status pane, click On to enable this alert for use.

    If you want to create the filter but not enable it, leave the status set to Off.

  8. Click Save.

    After you close the Alert Filter Settings window, the Event Console drop-down list includes the new filter.
