Managing alerts

Alerts give you the opportunity to combine different alert conditions into a set that is sent to specified individuals. You can also add a filter to the condition set to further isolate audit events for the email recipient.

The Alert page shows the alerts in the top pane and the alert history for a selected alert in the bottom pane. You can size the panes by dragging the horizontal split bar up or down.

Managing alerts

You can enable and disable alerts, either individually or all at once. A disabled alert is not triggered, therefore no email is sent regardless of the status of the notification policy.

You also can suspend email notifications, either individually or all at once. To suspend the email notification globally, see Changing the alert notification policy.
