When alerts are generated in vRealize Operations Cloud, they appear in the alert details and object details, but you can also configure vRealize Operations Cloud to send your alerts to outside applications using one or more outbound alert options.

You configure notification options to specify which alerts are sent out for the Standard Email, REST, SNMP, and Log File outbound alert plug-ins. For the other plug-in types, all the alerts are sent when the target outbound alert plug-in is enabled.

The most common outbound alert plug-in is the Standard Email plug-in. You configure the Standard Email plug-in to send notifications to one or more users when an alert is generated that meets the criteria you specify in the notification settings.
