Default Auto-close Policy

The Default Auto-close Policy closes events after they change status. If a threshold is defined for an advisor, and the threshold is breached, an event is displayed in the Events page. If it changes status to a lower priority status, or to a status without a defined threshold, the default auto-close policy closes the event.


The Default Auto-close Policy event handler is the only event handler created by default.

This policy does not apply to all Advisors. Some Advisors, such as MySQL Server Has Been Restarted, are too important to auto-close.


It is not possible to edit this Event Handler, but it is possible to override it using the Auto-Close Events option in the Create Event Handler dialog.
