Filtering "known errors" in VMWare Host Hardware (SOAP) sensor

Hi there, I have a brand new HPE Proliant with a P408i RAID card that intermittently returns sensor errors like

"Disk 136 on HPSA1 : Port Box 0 Bay 255 : 0GB : Unconfigured Disk : Disk Error; Disk 135 on HPSA1 : Port Box 0 Bay 255 : 0GB : Unconfigured Disk : Disk Error;"

.... and on and on for many Bays and Disks which don't even exist.

My question is, can I filter using "known errors" with a wildcard? For example, anything with "Unconfigured disk" in the error description should never display. For the last two weeks I have tried copy/pasting the errors that come up several times per day into the "known errors", but the combination of bay/error/disk count seems to be endless. Therefore my only way is to be able to do something in the known errors with wildcards.

Something like *Unconfigured disk* -- what is the syntax for wildcards here or is it simply not supported?

Hello, in that field you can only enter the specific error message, or several error messages separated by semicolons, but it is not possible to enter a wildcard for part of the message.
