You add outbound plug-in instances so that you can notify users about alerts or capture alert data outside of vRealize Operations Manager.
About this task
You can configure one or more instances of the same plug-in type if you need to direct alert information to multiple target systems.
The Automated Action plug-in is enabled by default. If automated actions stop working, check the Automated Action plug-in and enable it if necessary. If you edit the Automated Action plug-in, you only need to provide the instance name.
