Event management policy types provide a base policy definition that enables you to quickly create certain types of policies. Policy types allow you to quickly set up routine event management processes.
The following table describes the standard event management policy types.
Standard event management policy types
Sets the status of an event to BLACKOUT. A blackout policy might be used during a maintenance window or holiday period.
Closes a specified event in response to receipt of a separate event.
Component Based Enrichment
Enriches the definition of an event associated with a component by assigning selected component slot definitions to the event slots.
Relates one or more cause events to an effect event, and can close the effect event.
Adds values for specific event slots if those slots are empty as received from the event source.
Raises or lowers the priority level of an event after a specified period of time.
Sends a request to an external service to notify a user or group of users of the event.
Forwards events to other cells or to integrations to other products.
Combines duplicate events into one event that maintains a counter of the number of duplicates.
Automatically calls a specified action rule provided the incoming event satisfies the remote execution policy's event criteria.
Specifies which events that the receiving cell should delete.
Specifies a minimum number of duplicate events that must occur within a specific period of time before the cell accepts the event.
Changes an event status to closed after a specified period of time elapses.
Component Based Blackout
Specifies which events the receiving cell should classify as unimportant and therefore not process . The events are logged for reporting purposes.
It is also possible to define custom policy types that allow you to do specialized event processing not supported by the out-of-the-box policy types.
