Setting annotation rule precedence

By default, OnCommand Insight evaluates annotation rules sequentially; however, you can configure the order in which OnCommand Insight evaluates annotation rules if you want Insight to evaluate rules in a specific order.


  1. Log in to the Insight web UI.
  2. Click Manage and select Annotation rules.
    The Annotation Rules page displays the list of existing annotation rules.
  3. Position your cursor over an annotation rule.
    The precedence arrows appear to the right of the rule.
  4. To move a rule up or down in the list, click the up arrow or the down arrow.
    By default, new rules are added sequentially to the list of rules. Annotations set manually on an individual asset pages take precedence over rule-based annotations when Insight evaluates the annotation rules.
