Can we get an option to exclude certain devices from config change notifications? I LOVE the feature, but seeing our Mikrotik DHCP servers and firewalls in the change notifications every day makes it a bit spammy.

A simple toggle would be great, but even better would be an option to mark as DHCP server or Firewall and exclude changes to DHCP or Firewall related rules from notification, but let us know if some other part of the config changed.

Hey,

The changes you are seeing are being made by you / your team manually right?
(as in, its not some dynamic / automatic rules that are generating incorrect notifications)

Do you think an exclusion-based system would work?
You could define an exclusion rule, which would basically be a regex that would define what to ignore for change notifications.
You could then select if this applies to all devices, or only certain Tags.

Tomas,

For instance, our Mikrotik DHCP server has static leases written and removed daily, so it is always on the list of devices with config changes. It would be nice to exclude a device from change notifications all together, but to go even further, it would be nice to exclude say anything under "/ip dhcp-server leases" from triggering change notification. This way if some other part of the configuration (firewall filters) were changed, we would still be alerted.
