You can create alerts to notify you when a particular event is generated, so that you can address the issue quickly and thereby minimize impact to your environment. You can create alerts for a single resource or a set of resources, and for events of a particular severity type. You can also specify the notification method and frequency of the alerts.
This area enables you to select an individual resource or group the resources based on a dynamic rule for which you want to trigger the alert. A dynamic rule is the set of resources filtered based on the text string you specify. You can search for resources by selecting a resource type from the drop-down list or you can specify the exact resource name to display a specific resource.
If you are creating an alert from any of the storage object details pages, the storage object is automatically included in the alert.
The Exclude tab is displayed only when you select all resources of a particular resource type: for example, <<All Volumes>> or <<All Volumes whose name contains 'xyz'>>.
If a resource conforms to both the include and exclude rules that you have specified, the exclude rule takes precedence over the include rule and the alert is not generated for the event.
This area enables you to select the events for which you want to create the alerts. You can create alerts for events based on a particular severity or for a set of events.
To select more than one event, you should hold down the Ctrl key while you make your selections.
This area enables you to specify the users that you want to notify when an alert is triggered. You can also specify the notification method and the frequency of notification.
If you modify the email address that is specified for the user and reopen the alert for editing, the Name field appears blank because the modified email address is no longer mapped to the user that was previously selected. Also, if you have modified the email address of the selected user from the Management/Users page, the modified email address is not updated for the selected user.
