Condition Operators

In addition of : exact match operator; you can also use <, <=, > and >= operators.

count <= 4

Logical Operators

Combine multiple value(s) by using AND and OR operators. Just don't forget to wrap them with ( ) parentheses.


message: (lorem OR ipsum)

message field contains "lorem" or "ipsum"

description: (lorem AND ipsum)

description field contains both "lorem" and "ipsum"

Also you can combine multiple condition(s) by using AND and OR operators.


message: lorem AND count >= 3

message: (lorem OR ipsum) AND count >= 3

status: open AND (count >= 3 OR entity:lipsum)

Use the NOT search query to disqualify search results for a certain value.


NOT message: lorem

message field does not contain lorem

NOT status: open

status of alert results are not open, i.e, closed or resolved

Asterisk (*) Wildcard Usage

Asterisk (*) character can be used as a substitute for any of a class of characters in a search. It is often used in place of one or more characters when you do not know what the real character is or you do not want to type the entire name. If you are looking for an alert that you know "message" field starts with "lorem" but you cannot remember the rest of the field, type the following:


message: lorem*
