Notification policies do not include sending email alarm notifications to external management systems.
IT Expert Administrator users can configure alarm notification policies to inform specific users in your organization about alarms that occur on monitored devices.
A Default notification policy is pre-configured that includes all groups, locations, categories, and device types, and alarms with critical severity.
You can modify the default notification policy or delete it if you do not want to receive notifications.
- Go to Administration > Alarm notifications.
- Click New policy.
- Provide a name for your notification policy, and click Create policy.
- Select at least one group, at least one location, and the alarm severities, categories, and device types to include in the notification policy. Click Save.
|Recipients for notifications are based on group permissions already created in IT Expert.
Selections in the Groups section take precedence over selections in all other sections in the policy.
