How to create an alert filter based on the text within an alert's description?

Issy Pearson December 8, 2022

I'm having trouble filtering alerts that use the Slack integration. In this case I would only like alerts containing "This is a test" in their description field to use a Slack integration. Below is the filter I have applied to my Slack integration.

I've also checked and confirmed that alerts contain "This is a test" in the description field by going to  OpsGenie > Settings > Logs.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks :)

Hi @Issy Pearson ,

Maybe try filtering with regex using one of these values:

.*(This is a test).*

(?i).*(This is a test).*

The second would be case insensitive.



I typically use regex101 to validate if an expression will work.

@Nick H Yep that works thank you! I shall definitely have to brush up on my regex.
