Notification Groups

Notification Groups are email groups that will receive alerts related to events in the streams. For designated events, such as when a file is not found or if the stream fails, you can select the groups that should receive the email alerts.

To avoid large amounts of emails being sent for the same issue, there is a cool-down period of 30 minutes during which email sending is suspended. During this time, you will only receive one email for a specific problem in a specific stream, even if your stream has multiple collectors with the same issue, for example when files are not found.  

For information on streams, see Streams.

Creating a Notification Group

You can view and access your notification groups from the Notification Groups view. The page shows information about the defined notification groups, such as the name of the group, a description of the group, and the number of people in the group.

Once in the Notification Groups view, you can create, delete, or edit the groups.

  • To create a new notification group, click New Notification Group. You are prompted to enter the name of the group, a description of the group, and one or more recipient email addresses.

Editing a Notification Group

In the Notification Group view, you can navigate between the current notification groups.

  • Click to edit the name, description, and email recipients of the group or to delete the group. The delete option permanently removes the notification group.
