Patch for SCCM

Managing Alerts

This area is used to view and set your alert configurations. To access this area, within the Configuration Manager Monitoring workspace, expand the Ivanti Patch folder and then select Manage Alerts.

Use the following options to uniquely configure each alert.

Enabled: Specifies whether the alert is enabled or disabled. If an alert is disabled, the Active check box will not be used and you will not receive any email notifications.

Active: Specifies whether the alert is currently active. The Last triggered on field will show which console machine was affected, and the Last triggered at field will show when the alert occurred.

Severity: Specifies the importance you want to place on this alert. The available options are:

Informational: Indicates that an event has occurred.

Warning: Indicates an event that could potentially interrupt service if left unattended.

Critical: Indicates a configuration problem that is preventing Patch for SCCM from working properly.

Manage subscriptions: If you want to receive an email notification whenever an alert is triggered, click this link.

In order for this feature to work, SCCM must be configured to allow email notifications. To do this: Within the Administration workspace, select Site Configuration > Sites > Configure Site Components > Email Notification.

Use the Manage Subscriptions dialog to specify which email addresses you want to subscribe to this alert.

Alert notifications can be sent to one or more email addresses. The email alerts feature will be active as soon as you save your changes.

The email addresses you specify can be viewed by all other users of the console machine. In addition, if you have elected to use shared settings, the email addresses can be viewed on all other console machines by users who are using shared settings. For more information, see Shared Settings Tab.

After configuring the alerts, use the buttons along the top to save your changes, discard your changes, reset all alerts to their default configuration or refresh the information on the page.
