We can change the severity of traps and future traps by changing the trap definition in the event monitor.

Please review the following steps on changing the severity of traps on the Event Monitor Webpage. This will also allow future traps assigned to the same rule to report with the same severity:

  1. Push the policy associated with the rule to the agents. For more information on creating rules and policies, see Use Policies and Settings.
  2. Allow the event monitor to receive one trap alert from the agent that has been assigned the rule.
  3. Find and select the trap rule on the Event Monitor Webpage. Click the Edit icon, which brings up the "Edit Event" popup window.
  4. Change the severity of the trap via the "Severity" pull down option.
    • If you would like to change the severity to only reflect traps that are triggered for a specific rule then select "Override trap definition based on the rule Id" within the "Trap Definition override action" option.
    • If you would like to change the severity to all traps triggered for all the rules then select "Override default trap definition" within the "Trap Definition override action" option.
  5. Click Save.

After you click Save, the current traps already listed on the Event Monitor Webpage along with any further traps matching the trap just edited will reflect the updated severity change.
