Control Panel > Alert Suppressions

Alert Suppressions allows you to suppress an alert for a specific resource, signature or a region. This is typically done when there is a known problem for a specific resource or region and you don’t want to taint your alert data, but you want to make sure that said signature is working everywhere else.

You can suppress alerts either from this page or from Reports > View Reports.

Every alert suppression has some common elements that you can use to view a filtered list of all the alert suppressions available on the Evident service:
