Correlated Alert Error with Juniper IDS - "no devices configured"

Discussion created by RSA Admin Employee on Jul 1, 2012

I have a correlated alert that should be simple. Just look for a specific event from one IDS device.


The Alerter generates this error: " Detail: 3740: 9769 view=Juniper IDPS Alerts error no devices configured."


I think the device is being defined correctly in the statement. Device selection is based on "Select devices by Device Class/Type". Then I choose "Security/IPS", list the devices and choose the IP address for the relevant device.


Then in event selection I choose "Event ID", find the right device type, then choose the value from the list of Event IDs. I don't understand how it can fail with the error "no devices configured" when I choose it in Device Selection and I have the correct IP address listed in the XML file.


Here's the XML for the alert:
