Modify priority of scom alert


Is there a way to change the priority of an alert with powershell?

Kind regards,


Hi Luc,

This is something you’d put an override in SCOM to accomplish, find the underlying rule/monitor and override alert priority.



You can create overrides from powershell, more infos and code example here :

As CyrAz pointed out, you can do bulk overrides via Powershell, or even simpler, use Cookdown’s Easy Tune to tune it all with GUI.


Thanks Nicole. I know, but I don’t want to do this for each monitor. I want to do this on the fly based on the content of the displayname of the alert and also the path. They want to use this in our ticket system.
