Alert Suppression is only available if you have checked Show Advanced Features in the lower left of the Edit Advanced Alert window.In many cases, because suppression conditions are checked against all monitored objects on your network, properly defining alert trigger conditions may eliminate the need for alert suppression.

  2. Click View > Configure Alerts.
  3. Click New or select an alert from the list.
  4. Click Copy or Edit, as appropriate.
  5. Click Alert Suppression.

    Generate suppression conditions in the text field by selecting appropriate descriptors from the linked context menus and by clicking Browse (...) on the left of the text field.

  6. If you want to copy the condition used on the Trigger Condition tab, click Copy From Trigger.
  7. Click the linked text to select the number of conditions that you want to apply (all, any, none, not all). For more information about linked text conditions, see Understand condition groups
  8. Click Browse (...) to view the following condition options:

    • To generate a condition based on a comparison of device states, click Add a Simple Condition.
    • To generate a condition based on a comparison of device fields and values, click Add a Complex Condition.
    • To further define the application of your conditions, click Add a Condition Group.
    • To remove a selected condition, click Delete Current Condition.

    Conditions may be exported for use with other alerts by clicking Export Conditions and saving as appropriate. Conditions from other alerts may be imported to the current alert by clicking Import Conditions.

    Warning: Imported conditions automatically overwrite existing conditions.
