Creating Network Inventory alerts

When creating a Network Inventory alert, you specify the alert condition and the e-mail notification. Alert condition allows you to define the event that triggers the alert. The e-mail notification lets you define the notification message, the sender and the recipient of this message. You also define the Notification Interval for the alert (for details, see Alert window).

IMPORTANT: Network Inventory alerts can not be sent if the outgoing e-mail was not configured (for details, see Configuring outgoing e-mail).

To create a Network Inventory alert:

  1. Navigate to Network Inventory > Administrative Alerts.

  2. Network Inventory is shipped with a set of pre-defined alerts which must be customized before use. If you want to use one of them, double-click the alert and make your changes in the Alert window.

  3. If you want to create a new alert from scratch, click New on the Module menu. The New Alert Wizard starts. Follow the on-screen instructions and complete the wizard.

All alerts are listed in the Alerts section. You can double-click an alert to bring up the Alert window, where you can view or modify the alert definition.
