  • 1.  UMP 8.3 - regular expressions in alarm-filters - How?

    Posted 04-06-2016 04:55 AM

    Hi,

     

    I need a alarm object for some Netapp devices. In the old dashboard designer I could filter on regular expression in the message field. Documentations says this Alarm object  can use regular expression, but when I want to re-use the regexpress from the old dashboard, no alarms will show up anymore. Have tested it with several condition like "Message - contains" . What do I wrong here?

     

    Tip for the documentation department: nice to have an example here!

    Hope someone has a clue

    Regards

    change 'is' to 'matches'. also drop the / from the start and end of the expression.

     

    a quick FYI

     

    the regex will be more efficient if set to cifs|volume instead of the current expression.

    hi I-wright,

     

    Thanks but sorry, whatever I try I do not get the expected results.

    Again, a simple example in the documentations would be very helpful because now I doubt regex function is not available here.

    we use regex in 8.31 without issue.

    Solution:

    Completely overlooked the operator "matches" - in the list of operators. I was only using "is" and "contains" . Never seen "matches" as operator before. Solved by CA support and i-Wright  :-)

    Is this regex-function on alarms also working in 8.2 ?
