Configuring an Alert for a Report

You can set an alert for the data that appears in report tables.

In most reports, each condition type represents a column that is visible in the table. Just like the columns in reports, the corresponding alert conditions vary per report. Likewise, the value types that you can set vary per condition.

Procedure

  1. From the navigation pane, click Reports.

    The Reports page appears.

  2. Click a report.
  3. At the top-right of the table, click Show table menu > Configure alert.
  4. In the Name box, type a name for the alert.
  5. To specify a severity for the alert, such as Warning or Critical, next to Send notification with, select a status from the list.
  6. To set an alert based on the information in a column, select the column name, select a condition, and then type a value in the box.

    Values are not case sensitive.

    For example:

    Select Permissions, select equal to, and then type Execute Report.

  7. To add more alerts based on information in columns, click Add condition, specify the column name and value, and then choose when to send notifications.
    • To send the notification when all column conditions are met, next to Send notification email when, select all.

      You can use all when you specify a range with Less than and More than on the same numeric type column. Otherwise, you cannot use all when you set multiple conditions on the same column.

      For example:

      Select all, select Entity Type, select equal to, and then type client.

    • To send the notification when any of the column conditions are met, next to Send notification email when, select any.

      For example:

      Select any, select User Group, select equal to, and then type everyone.

    For more information on condition types, see Condition Types for Alerts.

  8. To check the alert conditions you configured, click Test Criteria.

    The results appear in a new dialog box.

  9. Specify the methods for sending alerts:
    • To send the alert in an email, select Email, and in the To, CC, and BCC boxes, type email addresses, and then enter any additional email text in the Email body box.
    • To send the alert through the CommCell Console alerts system, select Console alerts.
    • To send the alert using the Windows Event Viewer, select Windows event viewer, and then in the Description box, configure the alert message.
    • To send the alert using SNMP Traps, select SNMP Traps, and then in the Description box, configure the alert message.
    • To send the alert using SCOM, select SCOM Alert, and then in the Description box, configure the alert message.

    For more information on the alert types, see Alert Types.

  10. In the Time box, select an hour, minute, and AM or PM, select the Time zone, and then from the Frequency list, select when to send the alert, such as daily or weekly.
  11. Optional: Set the notification to repeat. Select the Repeat every check box, select an hour and minute, and in the until box, select a time.
  12. Click Save.

    When the item reaches the column condition that you specified, a notification is automatically sent using the method that you specified.
