This issue has been solved. See solution.

I am trying to suppress a certain event from logging to the DB and console. I ran the event wizard and found out that this cannot be performed automatically by the wizard. I followed the Action Details that stated to edit the Prevention Parameter configuration. I created a Prevention Parameter, selected the Log Rules Tab, Add Rule, but there is no radio button "Ignore the event". I'm not sure where or how to filter off events. The instructions are not clear to me. There is nothing in the admin guide that talks about it that I can see. We are using 5.2.9 MP1 on Windows 2008R2.

What sort of event are you wanting to ignore?  The way i do it is by using a negative boolean logic:

Add this rule to the top of your filter

Transmit when event ID does NOT equal "event ID"

itll then transmit all events exept that particular one.

You can then add more if you wish with extra OR events.

Please mark posts as solutions if they solve your problem!

Alex is correct.  The default behavior is to NOT send, so if there is not a rule match, the event will not be sent.

If a post helps you, please mark it as the solution to your issue.

Ok, thanks for the heads up, at least I got to the right area to control this. Its just a matter of getting used to the filter rules.
