You use the Notifications page to manage your individual alert notification rules. The rules determine which vRealize Operations Cloud alerts are sent to the supported target systems.

How Notifications Work

You add, manage, and edit your notification rules from this page. To send notifications to a supported system, you must configure and enable the settings for outbound alerts. The supported outbound notification plug-ins include the Standard Email Plug-In, REST plug-in, SNMP Trap plug-in, and the Log File plug-in.

Before you can create and manage your notification rules, you must configure the outbound alert plug-in instances.

Where You Find Notifications

To manage your notifications, in the menu, click Alerts and then in the left pane, click Configuration > Notifications.
