The search-based notifications can be categorized as follows:

  • System-based notification
  • User-defined notification
System-based notification parameters are predefined and upon activating notification alert, notification in the form of mails are sent. User-defined notifications are set by users, based on their requirements. You can create email notifications based on your search query. After you run a search, on the Results page, the Create notification option is displayed. For each search, you can:
  • Select the condition when you want to receive the notifications.
  • Define how frequently you want to receive the notifications.
  • Enter the email recipients for each notification (by default, your email ID is present in the receiver's list; you can also add multiple email IDs).
For a user-defined search:
  • It is mandatory for you to assign a name to the search-based notification.
  • It is mandatory to select the severity of a search-based event that is marked as a problem.
  • The user-defined events are uniquely identified by the search criteria.
  • You can specify the notification frequency as Immediately or As a daily digest.

You can manage your notifications from the Settings > Search-based Notifications page. On the Search-based Notifications page, you can view the existing notifications, edit them, activate or deactivate them, and also delete unwanted notifications.
