How To: Create a Filter Channel

Info:

Venafi logging is extensive and in some situations we may determine not all events are applicable to our implementation or we simply do not wish to have them logged. This article covers the steps on how to create a Filter Channel to filter out unwanted events.

 

More Info:

NOTE: Filter Channels will drop configured events and they won’t be logged at all. Please don’t filter any events we may need later after the even has happened.

 The steps to create and enable a Filter Channel are:

1. Go to Logging tree
2. Go to the Channels Object
3. Click Add > Filter Channel

7. Click Save
