Editing default rules for OpsItems

When you complete Integrated Setup, the system allows more than a dozen rules in Amazon EventBridge. These rules automatically create OpsItems in Amazon Systems Manager OpsCenter. Amazon Systems Manager Explorer then displays aggregated information about the OpsItems.

Each rule includes a preset Category and Severity value. When the system creates OpsItems from an event, it automatically assigns the preset Category and Severity.


You can't edit the Category and Severity values for default rules but you can edit these values on OpsItems created from the default rules.
