autosupport.content difference between option minimal and complete



     We were enabling autosupport for our filers recently and security team wanted to keep the autosupport content option to minimal. I could see from the docs that the option minimal will omit sections and values that might be considered sensitive information and reduce the amount of information sent. Choosing minimal greatly affects the level of support you can receive from global support since we do not have all the configuration details available in autosupport.

Given below are the details of command outputs that autsupport sends.

  • Items marked with an asterisk (*) are suppressed in the AutoSupport.content Minimal format.
  • Items marked with two asterisks (**) are partially displayed in the AutoSupport.content Minimal format.

Is there any way where we can set the autosupport.content option to complete and yet filter out only few of the details that the security team considers sensitive instead of not sending a whole bunch of data?

Thanks & regards,

Re: autosupport.content difference between option minimal and complete


I don't believe ASUP has this capability but maybe someone more knowledgeable than I am can confirm.

Re: autosupport.content difference between option minimal and complete


I can confirm that selective filtering of the complete AutoSupport is not a currently available feature. Note: AutoSupport will have enhancements in this area in future releases of Data ONTAP.

Hi Andris,

Is this filtering feature available now in Ontap 8.0.1 ?

If not, do you have any indication when this feature will be available?
