Adding annotations dynamically


When you create custom annotations, Unified Manager dynamically associates clusters, storage virtual machines (SVMs), and volumes with the annotations by using rules. These rules automatically assign the annotations to storage objects.

Before you begin

You must have the Application Administrator or Storage Administrator role.


  1. In the left navigation pane, click Storage Management > Annotations.

  2. In the Annotations page, click Add Annotation.

  3. In the Add Annotation dialog box, type a name and description for the annotation.

  4. Optional: In the Annotation Values section, click Add to add values to the annotation.

  5. Click Save.
