Configuring Windows Event Viewer, SNMP, and SCOM Alert Messages in the Health Report


On this page

You can customize the message that is displayed in alerts sent using Windows Event Viewer and SNMP. Alert messages are built using variables. You can edit, delete, or add pieces of information or columns in each message.


  1. Open the Health report.

    The Configure Alert dialog box appears.

  2. Configure alert conditions, and then under Notification, select Windows event viewer, SNMP, or SCOM.

  3. To remove a default field, delete the title and variable.

    For example, to remove the alert name from the message, delete Alert Name: <REPORT DISPLAY NAME>,

  4. To remove a default column, delete both the column name and token.

    For example, if you want to remove the Remarks column and the Reason column, delete Reason : $Outcome$ , Remarks : $Remarks$.


  5. To add custom text to the message, type the text in the Description box.

    For example, if you want to write a statement that explains the purpose of the alert, before the default message content type the following: The SLA is now less than 90%. For more information, see the following table.

  6. Click Save.
