Changing the order of rules

Enabled rules are applied in the order in which they are listed in the Rules listing. Rules with specific criteria should precede rules with general criteria. Only one rule per rule set is triggered per event, so if the first rule is too general it may always result in a match, with subsequent rules being ignored.

To change the order of rules:
  1. Select Manage > Rules and Actions > Rules from the IBM® Sterling Control Center Monitor window to display the Rules listing.
  2. Highlight the rule to reorder.
  3. In the Move selected to position # field, type the position in which to place the selected rule.
  4. Click Move.
    Note: Be patient while the rule is moved. The Rules listing refreshes when the move is complete.

    The rules listing must be sorted in ascending priority order before the move can be accomplished.
