Why Is the Handle False Alarm Button Grayed Out?

Verify that you have the permissions for WAF. For details, see WAF Permissions Management.

If you have enabled Enterprise Project, select an enterprise project and handle false alarms in the project.

  • For events generated based on custom rules (such as a CC attack protection rule, precise protection rule, blacklist rule, whitelist rule, or geolocation access control rule), they cannot be handled as false alarms. To ignore such an event, delete or disable the custom rule hit by the event.
