Filter​

Pre-defined filters​

When you open the Events view, the default filter is "Unhandled problems". This filter quickly show all problems/alerts that are not yet handled so you can focus on choosing the most relevant alerts to take care of. You can choose two other filters that are "Resources problems" and "All".

The following rules apply;

  • Unhandled problems: resource status is Warning or Critical or Unknown or Down AND the resource is not acknowledged nor in planned downtime
  • Resource problems: resource status is Warning or Critical or Unknown or Down
  • All: All resources

It's possible to filter out the events by name of resources. You can use the power of regular expression mechanism to finely search for resources (host or services)

By default, the search bar with look for your expression to match with

  • Host name
  • Host alias
  • Address or FQDN
  • Service description

It's possible to force search on a defined fields by using the following labels:

  • h.name: only search in host.name field
  • h.alias: only search in host alias field
  • h.address: only search in host address field
  • s.description: only search in service description field

By advanced criteria​

If pre-defined filter and the search bar are not enough, it's possible to expand the filter bar to access the following additionnal criteria:

  • Resource types (host or service)
  • Statuses (Ok,Warning, Critical, Unknown, Pending, Up, Down)
  • States: Is the problem already acknowledged, in a planned downtime or simply unhandled
  • Host groups
  • Service groups

Save your filter​

You may create some "complex" filters that set you in a specific context, using multiple criterias and even complex regular expressions. In that case, you may want to save this filter and re-use it later.

This is possible using the icon next to Filter. You'll be able to:

  • Save your current search as a new filter
  • Save the current filter so that it's updated using your current applied criterias
  • Edit filters so that you can rename, re-order or delete them

As soon as a filter is saved, it's re-usable in the Filter dropdown list, categorized under "My Filter".
