Specifying Which Alerts to Generate
If you want to send to alert group recipients all e-mail alerts that are generated for all receivers, domains, and APIs defined in the system, select the Catch All Messages option. Selecting this option can save you time setting up your e-mail alert groups—receivers, domains, and APIs do not have to registered individually when this option is selected.
If you select this option, specify the severity of the exceptions—ERR, WRN, or MES—that will generate an e-mail alert. Click Save to save your alert group configuration.
Otherwise leave this option clear to specify the receivers, domains, and APIs that you want to generate e-mail alerts.
Registering Receivers to a Group
1
Select the Receive alerts for all receivers option to cause e-mail alerts to be generated for all receivers. If you select this option, specify the severity of the exceptions that will generate an e-mail alert, click Save, and then go to step 2 to specify domains.
Otherwise leave this option clear to specify which receivers should generate e-mail alerts in step 2.
