Notifications are essential for keeping track of the overall state of your network. When a new event occurs (based on your configuration), you will be notified using a defined method (either an SNMP Trap or email message), and you can respond accordingly.
•All notification templates are displayed in the list and can be filtered by Name or Description.
•Click Add Filter to add filtering criteria and/or enter a string into the Name/Notification field.
•Select an existing notification to edit or delete it.
•To create a new notification, click New notification on the bottom of the page.
•Click Duplicate to create a new notification based on the selected notification (a new name is required for the duplicate task).
•A user can see only notifications that are contained in a group for which he has Read permissions.
Notifications, users and permissions
Similar to Server Tasks, the use of Notifications is restricted by the permissions of the current user. Every time the notification is executed, there is an executing user whose permissions are taken into account. The executing user is always the one who edited the notification last.
Create notification - To create a notification the user must have Write permissions for notifications on his home group. A new notification is created in the user's home group.
Modify notification - To be able to modify a notification, the user must have Write permissions for notifications on a group where the notification is located.
Remove notification - To be able to delete a notification, the user must have Write permissions for notifications on a group where the notification is located.
Access Group Filter
The Access Group filter button enables users to select a static group and filter viewed objects according to the group where they are contained.
