Working with triggers and notifications

You can create notifications to send email or pages, create SNMP traps, or execute arbitrary commands in response to an event. Use notifications to notify other management systems and execute arbitrary commands to drive other types of integration. How and when a notification is sent is determined by a trigger that specifies a rule (one or more conditions).

To set up a notification:

  • Create a trigger by defining rules.
  • Create a notification by selecting one or more triggers that cause it to run.
  • Choose appropriate options and subscribers depending on the notification type.
