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.
What you'll need
You must have the Application Administrator or Storage Administrator role.
In the left navigation pane, click Storage Management > Annotations.
In the Annotation Rules tab, click Add.
In the Add Annotation Rule dialog box, enter a name for the rule.
Select one object type from the Target Object Type list, and then select an annotation name and value from the list.
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.
Click Save and Add.
Example of configuring a condition for an annotation rule
Consider a condition for the object type SVM, where the object name contains “svm_data”.
Perform the following steps in the Add Annotation Rule dialog box to configure the condition:
Enter a name for the annotation rule.
Select the target object type as SVM.
Select an annotation from the list of annotations and a value.
In the Conditions field, select Object Name as the operand.
Select Contains as the operator.
Enter the value as
