Alerting

How do we turn off alert email from source type=ps

Path Finder

We get an alert from sourcetype=ps as a result of running this save search: (authentication failure) OR (Account * too many attempts) OR (Failed password) startminutesago=5

We turned off the *nix app ps savedsearch but we still get the email. Here is the collapsed version of the alert:

Try modifying your saved search to add a NOT statement for that sourcetype
