You can configure one or more conditions to create annotation rules that Unified Manager applies on the storage objects. The storage objects that satisfy the annotation rule are annotated with the value specified in the rule.

  1. In the toolbar, click , and then click Annotations in the left Management menu.
  2. In the Annotation Rules tab, click Add.
  3. In the Add Annotation Rule dialog box, enter a name for the rule.
  4. Select one object type from the Target Object Type list, and then select an annotation name and value from the list.
  5. In the Conditions section of the dialog box, select an operand and an operator from the list and enter a condition value, or click Add Condition to create a new condition.
  6. Click Save and Add.
