Disabling or enabling events

Contributors netapp-adityaw

All events are enabled by default. You can disable events globally to prevent the generation of notifications for events that are not important in your environment. You can enable events that are disabled when you want to resume receiving notifications for them.

Before you begin

You must have the OnCommand Administrator or Storage Administrator role.

About this task

When you disable events, the previously generated events in the system are marked obsolete, and the alerts that are configured for these events are not triggered. When you enable events that are disabled, the notifications for these events are generated starting with the next monitoring cycle.

When you disable an event for an object (for example, the vol offline event), and then later you enable the event, Unified Manager does not generate new events for objects that went offline when the event was in the disabled state. Unified Manager generates a new event only when there is a change in the object state after the event was reenabled.
