Add an email recipient and filter

Use this procedure to set up an email notification when a specific alert is generated.

  • Minimum required privileges: Infrastructure administrator.

  • Email notification must be configured.
  • The specified alert to capture.

  • List of potential recipients if that alert is generated.

  1. From the main menu, select Settings.
  2. Do one of the following:
    1. In the Notifications panel, click ..
    2. Click Notifications, and then select Actions > Edit.
  3. Supply the data requested in the Edit Notifications screen.
  4. Click Add alert email filter.
  5. Supply the data requested in the Add Alert Email Filter screen.
    1. Enter the filter name.
    2. Choose the Enabled menu item to enable this filter.
    3. Do one of the following:
      • For a simple filter query that does not involve a scope, select Pre-defined and choose one of the available options.
      • For a complex filter query (one that specifies one or more alert statuses, alert states, associated resource categories, or a combination of them) that does not involve a scope, select Guided and choose one or more of the available options.
      • For a filter query that involves a scope:
        1. Select Advanced.

        2. For each resource category assigned to the scope, enter the corresponding associatedresourcecategory.


          If you do not designate associated resource categories for a scope, alerts for non-scope resources (those that cannot be added to a scope) will not be filtered out. Do not rely on this behavior to capture those alerts.


          To reduce typing, select Guided, select the associated resource categories corresponding to the resource types in the scope, and then select Advanced to continue configuring the filter.

        3. Edit the filter query as needed. Use the AND, OR, and NOT operators as needed. For information, see Search resources.

        4. Select one or more scope names in the Resource scope field.

        5. Select Match any or Match all, as needed.

    4. Enter the email addresses for the person or group that should be notified when an alert is generated.
  6. Click Add to return to the Edit Notifications screen or click Add + to add another entry.
  7. On return to the Edit Notifications screen, the Filters list displays your entry or entries.
  8. Review your entries, and click OK to apply them.
