Apply Text or Watchlist filter to Correlation Rule

My overall goal is to create an alert that will fire if someone makes a change to a group with elevated privileges.  Basically if a user is added to or removed from "Domain Admins" or "Administrators", I want to be alerted.


I have created a correlation rule that alerts on the events dealing with security enabled group changes. 

I have also created a view for this alert.


Once the view is started I get all kinds of alerts any time a group changes. YAY!


Now that I know my event IDs are correct, I would like to be able to limit the groups that I am notified about.  I just want to know about the "Domain Admins", "Administrators", "Schema Admins", etc.


Here's where the problem comes in.


I have tried 3 different methods - all with no success.


Filter on [Content] (3 variations on this one):

 - WHERE [CONTENT] LIKE Domain Admins

 - WHERE [CONTENT] LIKE %Domain Admins%

 - WHERE [CONTENT] LIKE *Domain Admins*


Filter on Watchlist


 - GROUP_WATCHLIST contains Domain Admins, Administrators, etc.


Added additional "event selection" to the statement.

 - On the page where you set the event IDs to look for I added an "AND" for [CONTENT] with "Domain Admins"

(this one is far fetched ,I know)


None of these methods work.  Any time I add any of the filters and then mess with my group, I no longer get alerts.  If I remove all filters, I get an alert bonanza.

Please help.
