Small change to Muting Rules configuration

Hi folks!

I just wanted to jump in here and let you know about a small change we are making to Muting Rules. This change is not live yet, but should be in place by the end of this week (29 Oct, 2021).

When we first introduced Muting Rules, we forgot to include entity.guid in the list of options. This seems like a pretty big oversight, but all of you resourceful folks out there found a way to make it work, by filtering by tags.guid.

Well, entity.guid is an included tag on the violation event, and we wanted to make sure that this was an explicit choice in the dropdown menu when setting up a Muting Rule. So we are fixing it! However, tags.guid will no longer work. We’ll be migrating your existing Muting Rules though, so the only work to be done on your end is to update any configuration automation scripts to reflect this change.

TL;DR:

  • tags.guid will no longer work for Muting Rules
  • entity.guid is what you will be using instead
  • You will need to update any configuration automation scripts to reflect this change (we’ll take care of the rest)

Happy Alerting!
