Disable alert category?

What, if any, is the best way to delete an alert category?


To word it better, I need to disable the alert category. can I do that in ‘disable.conf’? If so, what is the proper syntax?


If its a specific filename you’d like to disable, you could add:

group: emerging-icmp.rules

do your disable.conf. Or ifs its all alerts with a specific msg prefix you could do something like:
