Manually delete entities you don't want to analyze in ITSI
When you stop data collection for a system or a system stops sending data to (ITSI) for another reason, the system still appears as an entity in ITSI. Similarly, if you delete an entity but the corresponding data source is still sending data, ITSI creates the entity from data it receives. Once you start collecting data from a system, it appears as an entity in ITSI until you stop collecting data and manually delete it.
You can remove entities from ITSI to control which infrastructure components to actively analyze.
|ITSI roles||You have to have the itoa_admin or itoa_team_admin role, and have write access to the Global team. For more information, see Configure users and roles in ITSI in the Administration Manual.|
Follow these steps to delete entities.
- From the ITSI main menu, go to Configuration > Entity Management.
- Select each entity you want to delete.
- To delete a single entity, click Edit > Delete from the entity's row. To bulk delete entities, select each one and then click Bulk Action > Delete selected.
