Specifying acceptable drift rules

Channel templates and channels can specify conditions for reporting drift. These conditions enable you to choose values to ignore when determining drift so that any normally acceptable ranges of values do not cause inappropriate drift. 

You specify drift rules the same way that you specify a configuration entry, except that the value determines the condition to apply. The system supports the following conditional rules:

[My][Application][Config][Setting]name=min <number>
[My][Application][Config][Setting]name=max <number>
[My][Application][Config][Setting]name=equal <number>
[My][Application][Config][Setting]name=match <regex>

The square-bracketed portion is a standard configuration entry identifier.

The name is the name of the configuration setting, where min, max, equal, and match determine which condition to apply, as defined in the following table.

Setting
