‘New Hashtag’ configuration window contains two tabs. The first of these is
the ‘Hashtags’ tab:
Within this tab, you
can can set the following fields:
Name: The actual Hashtag, i.e. ‘SUPERIMPORTANT’. NOTE: Don’t include the # symbol here, it is used purely for
display within the product.
Hashtag View: Enabled/Disabled. If set to Disabled, the
Hashtag will not be visible within ‘Monitoring > Hashtags’; however it will
be visible still within filtering options for Event Viewer, and also within
various Settings sections including Roles, Notification Profiles and more. Note: If
this is set to disabled, the below fields will all be hidden.
Public: If checked, unauthenticated users will be able view the Hashtag
within ‘Monitoring > Hashtags’.
Description: A friendly, descriptive name. For example, if
the Hashtag is ‘apache’, the description could be set to ‘Apache Web Servers’.
This is the name that will appear below the Hashtag within the analysis view,
i.e. below we have a Hashtag with the name ‘data-center-c’ and the Description
‘Data Center C: New York’.
Handed: As covered in the Overview section, this option tells the Hashtag
to only calculate its state based on unhandled
states. For example, if the Hashtag above contained 4 CRITICAL Service
Checks but they were all handled, then the Hashtag would display as ‘OK’ /
Green if this option were checked.
