OnCommand Unified Manager 9.5

Reordering annotation rules

Contributors netapp-adityaw

You can change the order in which Unified Manager applies annotation rules to storage objects. Annotation rules are applied to storage objects sequentially based on their rank. When you configure an annotation rule, the rank is least. But you can change the rank of the annotation rule depending on your requirements.

Before you begin

You must have the OnCommand Administrator or Storage Administrator role.

About this task

You can select either a single row or multiple rows and perform many drag-and-drop operations to change the rank of annotation rules. However, you must save the changes for the reprioritization to be displayed in the Annotation Rules tab.


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

  2. In the Annotation Rules tab, click Reorder.

  3. In the Reorder Annotation Rule dialog box, drag and drop single or multiple rows to rearrange the sequence of the annotation rules.

  4. Click Save.

    You must save the changes for the reorder to be displayed.
