Event field mapping configuration Event field mappings are used to map values from specific fields to values in other fields. Event Management stores event field mappings in the Event Field Mapping [em_mapping_rule] table. The mappings apply after event rule processing and just prior to alert generation. The mapping values from the Event Mapping Pair [em_mapping_pair] table apply to the alert. The original event severity remains unchanged. For example, if the events came with the field "org_severity" that get the values "Low, Medium, High" and you want the alert Severity to hold the value, create an event field mapping rule that maps the field org_severity to Severity, with values. Table 1.

The Event Mapping Pairs from event field mappings format the incoming event data for Event Management.Create event field mappingsUse event field mappings to provide more comprehensive information in an event alert by substituting values from the event field mapping rule into the event.
