Add alert to an alert group

Add alert to an alert group

After viewing the individual alerts in an alert group, you might conclude that an alert should be added to an alert group. Manually add that alert to an existing alert group so the group is more complete and useful in troubleshooting an incident.

About this task

Procedure

  1. Navigate to Event Management > Alert Console.
  2. Click the alert group to which you want to add alerts.
  3. In the Grouped Alerts dialog box click Add Secondaries.
  4. In the Add Alerts dialog box, select the alerts that you want to add, and then click Add Selected.
    The Add Alert to This Group dialog box lists all open alerts which are not included in any alert group.
  5. To remove an alert, click Actions on selected rows, and then click Remove.
    After viewing the individual alerts in an alert group, you might conclude that an alert should be removed from the group. Manually remove that alert from an existing alert group so the group is more accurate and useful in troubleshooting an incident.

    If an alert group is left with one or no alerts after all alerts are removed, the group is deleted and no longer displays in alert group lists. The virtual primary alert that was added when the group was created, is closed.

What to do next

On the Alert form, verify that the newly added alerts appear in the Alerts tab.
