Issue/Introduction

We're wanting to filter a number of vm's which are being discovered. I've read all documentations indicating the option for filtering and rules but we're not seeing this option. Our current version is v7.14hf3.

Environment

Release : 20.3

Component : UIM - VMWARE

Resolution

In the Admin Console (AC) you just have to open the Template Editor and create a copy of a template and configure it.

You must activate the copied-edited template for the probe to apply the filter configuration. When you change the template state to active, the probe immediately applies all template configuration, including filters, rules, and monitors. Then you can add filters / rules.
