Dashboard for certain Custom Group or Policy

We have Custom Groups for our Dev environment, as well as our Production environment.  We also have 2 policies, 1 for each of the environments.

I'd like to create a Dashboard, or view of some sort that only shows alerts for either of the environments.  It's very confusing having alerts for both on the same view.

Thanks!

Yes, you can do this with a custom dashboard. 

Create a new dashboard and add the Alerts Widget and save.  Once on the actual dashboard, click the pencil to edit the widget.  Inside the widget settings search for the custom group you created by name.  In the example I used 4 Node Clusters, which is a group I have.  Select it, and chose what alerts you want to filter by in the Filter By section at the bottom of the screen.  Set that up however you want.

Alternatively you can do this by expanding the Tag Picker field rather than an object.

Ok, great response, however here's another monkey wrench:

I have a custom group for our Dev Environment, which has an associated policy.

However for our Default policy, there is no custom group, so it's just alerting on the rest of our environment NOT specified in the Dev Group/policy.

So is there an easy way for me to create a custom group for our entire environment not including what's in the Dev custom group?

Is Dev in it's own cluster/datacenter?

If you have a cluster or datacenter in which dev runs you could exclude it like this:
