Configuring an Alert for a Report on the Web Console


On this page

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. The value types that you can set vary per condition.

In the Health Report, each condition is based on the information displayed for each parameter. For instructions on setting alerts in the Health Report, see Health Report - Set Alerts.


  1. Log on to the Web Console, and then click Reports.

    The Reports page appears.

  2. Click a report.

  3. At the top-right of the table, click Settings , and then click Configure alert.

    The Configure alert dialog box appears.

  4. In the Alert 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 Protected Objects, select more than, and then type 100.

  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 Protected Objects, select less than, and then type 200.

    • 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 Size of Application, select more than, and then type 0.99.

      For more information on condition types, see Condition Types.

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

    The results appear in a new tab in your web browser.

  9. Specify the methods for sending alerts:

  10. In the Time box, select a time, from the Time Zone list, select a time zone, and then in the Frequency box, select the frequency for sending the alert, such as daily or weekly.

  11. To configure the notification to repeat, select the Repeat every 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 sent using the method that you specified.

Note: To specify the number of rows for alert notifications in reports, you can set the nAlertRowCount additional setting. For instructions about adding an additional setting from the CommCell Console, see Adding an Additional Setting from the CommCell Console.
