Alert Actions

Alert actions are triggered when an incoming alert matches the specific criteria defined in the alert action. The criteria for matching the alert include:
There are four types of alert actions:
  • Alert Application Launch Action — Launch a script or batch file when the alert action criteria is matched.
  • Alert Email Action — Send an e-mail when the alert action criteria is matched.
  • Alert Ignore Action — Ignore the alert when the alert action criteria is matched.
  • Alert Trap Forward Action — Forward the SNMP Trap to another management console when the alert action criteria is matched.

By default, new alert actions are enabled. If you want to turn off the alert action without deleting it, you can disable it either through the right-click menu or the edit wizard for the alert action.

Several common alert action use cases are pre-installed in the disabled state to illustrate common usage. When using these pre-installed actions, it is recommended to clone the example to a new action specific to your needs. Make sure to enable and test the new action during this process.
