Last updated: 2021-03-19 16:53:06

    Overview

    Alarm recipients/groups determine who can receive alarm notifications. You can put people related to the same alarm in the same group. When the alarm is triggered, people in the group will receive the corresponding alarm notification. The following describes how to add an alarm recipient group for an alarm policy.

    Directions

    Adding alarm recipient

    1. Log in to the CM console and go to Alarm Policy.

    4. In the Recipient Object drop-down list, select the User Group type and click Add Recipients on the right of the text box to enter the user list page.
    5. You can create either a sub-account or a message recipient as needed.
