Thanks William, James and Jane ..
I did succesfully create a Dynamic Workspace displaying Events and Traps from a given type of devices using the Ruleset.
I have name one Workspace "CISCO_EVENTS"
But now, when Closing and re-opening the Clients GUI, I notice the following:
1- Some Workspace Do not re-open with their original name (CISCO_EVENTS for Example), instead the have the name "events"
at the end you have more than one "events" workspace beside the default "events" workspace
2- Should I include my ruleset names in the ESE.automation file?

    All of this can be done with a smartset.  If you use Cisco as an example, the basic breakdown of their devices is:
Cisco =
routers =
switches =
    Because of acquisitions, there are other OIDs that belong to them, but you can expand this example to include whatever you want
Question 1 -  Make a  smartset who's membership rule is sysObjectId = <your desired targets OID>
Question 2 - Make a ruleset that blocks all events except those coming from members of your smartset in #1.  Then when you open your event window, create a dynamic workspace that uses this ruleset.  Or use this ruleset as the default for the event window itself.  Jane's last message told you how to save those for your customer.
Question 3 - The sysObjectId and the EnterpriseId are related but different.  If you look at my Cisco example, the OID that stops at 4.1.9 is the Enterprise Id, and as you can see, they add subsets to it by adding additional numbers, for routers, for switches.  Then they add additional numbers to each of these to identify specific router and switch types.  For examples look in /usr/OV/conf/C/oid_to_sym file
Here are some examples.  These are sysObjectIds. Router:cisco-Rtr3620Family Router:CPA3600     # cpa3620 Router:CPA3600     # cpa3640 Router:cisco-C7200 Router:cisco-Rtr700Family Router:cisco-Rtr700Family Router:cisco-Rtr700Family
Question 4 - Just make your smartset stop at the Enterprise id.  If a vendor uses more then 1 Enterprise id, just include all of them in the qualifying rule for the smartset.  Again in the case of Cisco, you would just say
 "anything whose sysObjectId included AND <Any Other sysObjectId They Own>"
    Hope this helps, Good luck!

Thanks Jane,
I am having a problem about the event matching configuration.
1- I want to create a workspace for a specific device type with sysObjectID = for example
2- I want All events (Treshold, Node UP, Node Down, etc ..) and All Traps from that Device type to be displayed on that Workspace
3- What Attributes represents  the sysObjectID? is it the EntrepriseID?
4- What about when  you want to display events from all Devices from the same vendor, can youu use "Greater or equal to" selection?
5- Any suggestions
6- any *.rs file sample would help.
