Issue/Introduction

Is it possible to create an alarm filter such as below? 
"Origin is [hub] + probe is cmd + or probe is process + and message contains threshold or message contains stopped"

 

Environment

Release:
Component: CAUIM

Resolution

Currently this can be achieved using regex notation ...

You have to choose "matches" instead of "contains" and you can use the "OR" regex operator |
For example:
Origin is hub
probe matches cmd|process
message matches threshold|stopped
 
this would match messages which contain the word "threshold" or "stopped" -- it does not require a full/exact match.
 
'OR' operator will most likely be added in a future release to make it easier/more intuitive.
