Managing existing 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.

Changing the alert notification policy

Managing alert history

The bottom pane on the Active Administrator Alerts & Alert History page displays the history for the selected alert. By default, all event definitions for the selected alert display. In addition to filtering the list, you can limit the display by selecting individual events to display.

You can resend the alert to selected email addresses. You also can create an alert history report to send to specified email recipients or to save to a file.
