OMi : SBEC query

Hello Experts,

I have written a SBEC  for the repeatation rule.

Its been defined 10 as minimum number of events within 2 minutes , but sometimes count goes above 10 .

It randomly varies value from 11 to 17. In that Case I have seen first 10 events are getting Correlated , but from 11 to 17  it is not , Is it expected Behaviour ?

As per my my understanding , lower number is 10 , but higher should be unlimited within time range. Please correct my undertanding  & suggest how I can move take care of this situation.

Another is to see the quick video's explaining best practice and expected behavor:

Based on the 9th point on the Administration guide > Event Processing > Stream-Based Event Correlation > Repetition Rules, this could be an expected behavior, to confirm it would be necessary to review how the repetition rule was configured to confirm it:


  1. Choose whether the actions should be executed the first time (the default) or every time the condition is fulfilled.

If you choose the default option, a new event is created only the first time the condition is fulfilled (during the initial rule execution) and all subsequent events within the specified time window will correlate to the same cause. They are modified accordingly, which does not apply to the already existing events.

Decide how you want all subsequent events to be handled, either within the remaining time window (which is set by the initial rule execution), or for the sliding time window, which means that with each subsequent event the time window is automatically extended. The default value is remaining.

Hi Ashish,

You would need to create combination rule additionally to accomplish this. additionally what is the action you are performing once the condition met, if you are creating a cause event and closing all the symptoms then in the cause event you have to add a custom attribute something like "SBEC generated" and ensure you have the event filter capture this eventin the combination rule.

there is detailed docs available for this issue. you can refer that...
