Notable Event Aggregation Policy (NEAP) isn't working as expected

Problem

The filter criteria for the below Notable Event Aggregation Policies (NEAP) isn't working as expected:

  • Episodes by Alarm
  • Episodes by Alert Group
  • Episodes by ITSI Service
  • Episodes by Src

Cause

The definition of the NEAPs use this filter criteria:

"config": {
    "field": "itsi_policy_id",
    "operator": "=",
    "value": "<uuid>"
}

In previous versions of the content pack the uuid was hard coded. Ideally, the value for the itsi_policy_id field is the ID of the NEAP.

Solution

Follow these steps to update the value of the itsi_policy_id field to use the ID for the NEAPs:

  1. Log in into the Splunk instance with ITSI.
  2. Go to the IT Service Intelligence app.
  3. Go to Configuration > Notable Event Aggregation Policies.
  4. For each NEAP follow these steps:
    1. Select a NEAP, and select the Filter Criteria and Instructions tab.
    2. Under include the events if, replace the value in the itsi_policy_id field as per this table:
      NEAP Existing itsi_policy_id New itsi_policy_id
