Adding annotations dynamically

Contributors netapp-adityaw

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 OnCommand Administrator or Storage Administrator role.


  1. In the toolbar, click clusterpage settings icon, and then click Annotations in the left Management menu.

  2. In the Annotations page, click Add Annotation.

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

    You can also add values to annotations while creating annotations.

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

  5. Click Save and Close.
