Adding exclusion pre-filters to event handlers

Pre-filters can be configured for all the available log fields in event handlers. Each event handler can have multiple pre-filters.

The pre-filters are applied before every regular filter in the event handler. This means the pre-filter criteria does not need to be added individually within each regular filter.

To create a pre-filter:
  1. Go to FortiSoC > Handlers > Event Handler List.
  2. Select the checkbox for an existing event handler, and click Edit.

    You can also add pre-filters when creating a new event handler.

  3. In the Pre-filters area, click Add Pre-Filter.

    The Pre-filter dialog opens.
