    Will Alert Central take over NPM email alerts?

    emilantonio

      I have NPM implemented in my environment and I setup email alerts so I will get notified when a node goes down. If I setup Alert Central to go hand in hand with Orion NPM, will AC take over the email alerts? Will all my emails be coming from AC only? If I setup a custom email in NPM, will that show in AC as well?

          Hi,

           

          Q: If I setup Alert Central to go hand in hand with Orion NPM, will AC take over the email alerts?

          A: No, it doesn't. So if you set up some email for Alert on NPM side (say, email1@domain1.com) and then set up a rule on AC side so that alerts from NMP are sent to some email (say, email2@domain2.com), then when a node goes down, both emails will be notified.

           

          Q: Will all my emails be coming from AC only?

          A: No, will be sent to both emails. See details above

           

          Q: If I setup a custom email in NPM, will that show in AC as well?

          A: No, only alert properties will be shown in AC.

           

          So we if you'd like not to be notified twice, you'll have to switch off email notification on NPM side
