Discovery Filters

Discovery Filters are used to include / exclude devices based on certain filter conditions.

They come in handy when you want to add only devices of a particular type (say Windows devices ) to OpManager but you have a wide variety of devices coming under the specified input range.

How to set device filters during Discovery: 

  • In the Discovery wizard, click on 'Add Filter'.

  • Discovery Action: Indicates whether the device that satisfies the criteria is to be added or ignored during device discovery
  • Type: The parameter that has to be checked for inclusion (add) / exclusion (ignore)
  • Condition: The logical condition that the parameter specified must match for inclusion (add) / exclusion (ignore)
  • Enter the value for the condition and click on Add
