Modifying Alert Priorities

Required License: Logging Analytics and Detection or Total Network Analytics and Monitoring

Alert types come with default priorities, which affect how sensitive the system is to generating alerts of this type. Alerts default to low or normal priority, based on Cisco intelligence and other factors. Based on your network environment, you may want to reprioritize alert types, to emphasize certain alerts that you are concerned with. You can configure any alert type to be low, normal, or high priority.

  • Select Monitor > Alerts.
  • Click the settings drop-down icon (), then select Alert Types and Priorities.
  • Click the edit icon () next to an alert type and select low, medium, or high to change the priority.
