Event handling - No Delete?

I got 3 servers with ISDN PRI cards, handling thousands of fax per day. Each call is a Link Up and a Link Down event. Don't really need those inside of SIM. So I looked at automatic event handling to just delete them, but there is no delete option, only clear. Anyone know how to potential implement delete?

In Tasks & Logs you'll see a sample 'Delete Events Older than 90 days' task that you can use to model. Task deletion is based on a schedule rather than being driven by event receipt.

I know about the "Delete Events Older Than 90 Days" and "Delete Old Noise Events", both are enabled. But I don't see any function to create a new task there.

Hello Ulf.

My suggestion :
Create a system collection with only the 3 servers.
Create an event collection with the following criterias :
- Choose members by attributes
- event type is RFC1215 Linkup + LinkDown
- name it 'Link Events' for example and save it.

Create a new event collection with the following criterias :
- choose members from existing collection
- choose the two collections created above
- name it 'fax servers links events' for example and save it.
This collection will contain only the LinkUp and LinkDown events for the 3 servers.

Now go to Options/Events/Delete Events
Select the event collection last created.
click on schedule and configure it as needed.
After the creation, the task will be listed in the Scheduled tasks.

Regards.
