Name or Rename a Rule

The ESM Console automatically generates the rule name and description based on the rule details and time of creation. To override the autogenerated name, select the Name tab, clear the Activate automatic description option, and then enter your own rule name and description.
The rule that is modified or edited most recently takes precedence over older rules of the same type. As a result, changing the name of a rule changes the modification date for the rule and can cause the edited rule to override older rules.
The rule description is a good place to record the business reasons for the creation of a rule. For example, you might include an incident identification number or a link to a help desk ticket.
