Polling of bandwidth for utilization on specific interfaces, esp when sub interfaces are present

We have devices discovered and they have a interface say like se0/1/0 and there is a subinterface se0/1/0.100 underneath it. I have inbandwidth and outbandwidth polling enabled. And it detects utilization above 90% and sends alerts and everything works. So with the subinterface utilization being high we get two alerts like below. Both are in NmosManagedStatus =0, is there a way to distinguish , that we can ticket / escalate only one event and not end up with 2 events for each. One Idea i had was using the rules file to enrich an additional field, but since sub interfaces can change and also if there is a bundle like a MFR with multiple serial's underneath it, then it might not match a regex pattern.

    Hi, this capability should be possible in the event management component in the Cloud Pak for Watson AIOps. As such we will not implement this in ITNM.
