      Description

      In CloudStack, we have features like Alerts and Events that helps administrator in managing the cloud. Admin can get a list of Alerts and Events but there is no way to control them i.e delete or archive them.
      This feature will provide the functionality to delete or archive the Alerts/Events. In this way admin can get more controls over the Alerts and Events and manage them to get required and useful information. CloudStack admin can manage them by using the APIs or through CloudStack UI.

        Hi John,

        I definately do/did intend to start the discussion, however, I noticed that we are are a critical juncture with ACS 4.1 release and a lot of discussion underway - this is a feature not proposed for 4.1 per se, so wanted to wait a few days before getting the community's attention - hope that clarifies the lack of a DISCUSS email thread...

        Hey Hari - first a reminder that when submitting feature requests, you need to also start a discussion on the dev list. See https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/CLOUDSTACK/Adding+new+features+and+design+documents for more info.

        My only request on this is it'd be really nice to have a config flag either in the DB or config file that allows disabling the ability to delete events - some sites will not want events/alerts tampered with.
