Although, UIM 20.3.2, some filtering can be done by editing the filters in each column as described below, at this time, alarm filters in the operator console are not yet completely rolled out and/or supported/documented.

This affects the ability of the Operator Console to integrated with other parts of UIM new operator console, such as the SLM or the Dashboard Designer.

It is expected that alarms filtered in the Dashboard designer widget do not link the alarm pass through to an alarm filtered Operator console.


This KB also explains how to resolve an issue where the alarm Console is stuck having an "advanced filter" that is automatically set when launching the alarm console from the SLM portlet "view SLM Alarm" option. 



- OC Alarm filters not yet documented


Release : 20.3.2



•  Support and new features for alarm filtering are coming up in the next UIM Operator Console Hotfix 20.3.3.

The hotfix ETA is late March 2021 and it resolves this issue.



•  To add or remove an alarm filter click on "Clear Filter" next to the filter icon at each "column" filed in the Operator Alarm console. Then Refresh the page (f5)


Full support and related documentation for alarm filters will come in a future release of UIM. In the meanwhile, you can apply the filters needed for a user by clicking on the filter icons and creating a filter condition.

The filter conditions based on each column will sum up and will be concatenated with an AND logic.

On the next login, the filter will be kept. 

Example: by clicking on "more" - near to "host historical" a pop up appears with the complete list of the active filters if the filters defined are too long to fit in the Advanced filter space.
