You define property symptoms, which are based on collected configuration properties, so that you can add one or more symptoms to an alert definition in vRealize Operations Cloud. You use the triggered symptoms to resolve alerts or troubleshoot other problems.
How Property Symptom Definitions Work

|Base Object Type||
Object against which the symptom is evaluated.
Based on the selected object type, the list of available properties displays only the properties applicable to the object type.

If a property is not listed in the common properties list, based on the selected based object type, use Select Resource to inspect the properties of a selected object so that you can locate the property that you must use to create the symptom. Even though you select a property for a specific object, the symptom definition is applicable to all objects with that property in your environment.
