Disable alarm for group on sunburst map



I have a group called VPNs and another one called Links, I did this to better organize the devices. I created a sunburst map to monitor all these devices. Inside the VPN for example I have dozens of devices, but I don't want the entire group VPN (inner circle on sunburst graph) to go red when only one VPN is down. If possible I would like that if 3 or more VPNs are down than the group VPN should go red, if that is not possible to configure then I would like the group VPN to never go red at all. How can I do that? Thanks

Dear Vinicius

The sunburst itself cannot be changed. It always inherits the worst status to the next layer.

But you can setup a Business Process Sensor to go into alarm state if a certain percentage of input sensors are down.
