Event Management inventory page

Contributors

The Event Management inventory page enables you to view a list of current events and their properties. You can perform tasks such as acknowledging, resolving, and assigning events. You can also add an alert for specific events.

The information on this page is refreshed automatically every 5 minutes to ensure that the most current new events are displayed.

Filter components

Enable you to customize the information that is displayed in the events list. You can refine the list of events that are displayed using the following components:

  • View menu to select from a pre-defined list of filter selections.

    This includes items such as all active (new and acknowledged) events, active performance events, events assigned to me (the logged in user), and all events generated during all maintenance windows.

  • Search pane to refine the list of events by entering full or partial terms.

  • Filter button that launches the Filters pane so you can select from every available field and field attribute to refine the list of events.

Command buttons

The command buttons enable you to perform the following tasks:

  • Assign To

    Enables you to select the user to whom the event is assigned. When you assign an event to a user, the user name and the time when you assigned the event is added in the events list for the selected events.

    • Me

      Assigns the event to the currently logged in user.

    • Another user

      Displays the Assign Owner dialog box, which enables you to assign or reassign the event to other users. You can also unassign events by leaving the ownership field blank.

  • Acknowledge

    Acknowledges the selected events.

    When you acknowledge an event, your user name and the time when you acknowledged the event are added in the events list for the selected events. When you acknowledge an event, you are responsible for managing that event.

    You cannot acknowledge Information events.

  • Mark As Resolved

    Enables you to change the event state to resolved.
