Event Enrichment with Agent Labels

Labels are default fields collected by the Sysdig Agent, on top of those specified in rule output. The agent will pull them out by default and they will be shown in the events feed and in your events forwarder destination.


You can decide to enable or disable this feature. It is enabled by default.

  enabled: true/false

Adding Custom Labels

The agent is set to have a set of default labels. It’s possible to both include additional labels and exclude labels from the default set.

    - custom.label.to.exclude

    - custom.label.to.include
