Website Monitoring Alert: host to set exclude_from_alerts

Hi,
in the alert for the Website Monitoring app, there is a check:
tag!="exclude_from_alerts"
Which seems to control exclusion of a specific site from alerts.
But I have no idea how to set this up.
Setting
tag=exclude_from_alerts
or
exclude_from_alerts=true
both just result in Errors in the log.

thx
afx

The exclude_from_alerts tag is defined in the tags.conf file as the eventtype filter_website_monitoring_alerts. You will find the search definition for this in eventtypes.conf. Right now the search is set to FILL_THIS_SEARCH_IN.

Update the search definition to be what you would like either by adding the stanza to a local/eventtypes.conf or through the Settings|Event Types in the UI.

You can also create additional eventtype definitions and associate those with the tag exclude_from_alerts as well.
