How to stop the receiving of Operational Insights Configuration Alerts (formerly ‘Advisor’) in Operations Manager

[NOTE -  Operational Insights is now a part of Operations Management Suite. Learn more at microsoft.com/OMS ]

When you connect your Operations Manager deployment to the Advisor service and use the ‘Configuration Assessment’ intelligence pack (formerly ‘System Center Advisor’ scenario), all the ‘Configuration Alerts’ generated by the Advisor configuration assessment intelligence pack are sync'd/imported back to your Operations Manager environment and they show up in your Operations Manager console.

If you only want to view these alerts in the Advisor portal and Not in the Operations Manager console, then follow the instructions below to disable the rules that do the synchronization work. There are two rules involved in this process:

  1. Microsoft.OpInsights.ImportAlert
  2. Microsoft.OpInsights.SyncAlert

To disable Microsoft.OpInsights.ImportAlert

In Operations Manager, click Authoring.

  1. Under Authoring, select Rules
  2. In the Look for: search box, type "importalert"
  3. Right click on "Microsoft.OpInsights.ImportAlert" rule under Type: Collection Server
  4. Select Overrides, then select Disable the Rule and finally select For all objects of class: Collection Server
  5. In the Override Properties window, for the Enabled parameter, set the Override Value to False
  6. Select the destination management pack and click OK

To disable Microsoft.OpInsights.SyncAlert

  1. Now back in the Rules page's Look for: search box, type "syncalert"
  2. Right click on "Microsoft.SystemCenter.Advisor.SyncAlert" rule under Type: Collection Server (Note – if you see two rules like in the screenshot below, you can ignore the one referring to ‘Advisor’; that is an older implementation and we already disable that – the new ‘OpInsights’ one does the real work now)
  3. Select Overrides, then select Disable the Rule and finally select For all objects of class: Collection Server
  4. In the Override Properties window, for the Enabled parameter, set the Override Value to False
  5. Select the destination management pack and click OK
