Report for existing alert configurations


I need to configure a report that gets me the summary details [in the last summary page] of all the 'Alerts configured in solarwinds'

Since i require the details of trigger conditions and trigger actions configured in each alert.

Kindly help me in this regard.

Any luck on this?

No answers because it can't be done in any user friendly way.  It's fairly easy to get a report that breaks down everything except the trigger and reset conditions.  Those are stored as xml in the database and I have yetto come across anyone who has any good tricks for parsing them back into something that is really human readable.

If you run this as a SWQL query it will give you the data if want to take a crack at decoding it

--Alert Configuration and Actions Report

select as  [Alert Name]




WHEN ac.Severity = 2 then 'Critical'

WHEN ac.Severity = 3 then 'Serious'

WHEN ac.Severity = 1 then 'Warning'

WHEN ac.Severity = 0 then 'Informational'

WHEN ac.Severity = 5 then 'Notice'

END AS [Severity]








from orion.actionsassignments aa

join orion.alertconfigurations ac on aa.parentid=ac.alertid

join orion.actions a on a.actionid=aa.actionid

join orion.actionsproperties ap on ap.actionid=a.actionid

where ac.enabled=1

order by ac.Name, aa.Categorytype desc, a.ActionTypeID, ap.PropertyName
