Automatic email alerts can be created to get immediate notification on potential issues with Swarm Perception Boxes. In an additional section "Monitoring Alerts" in the Swarm Control Center, custom alerts can be created and managed. Choose from several predefined alerting conditions, choose the relevant devices, define Email recipients and get instant Email notifications if a device changes the status from operational to not operational or warning.
The creation of the alert is split into three sections.
Alert conditions are based on the connection status and the stream monitoring status In the table below the three predefined alert conditions are explained.
At least one condition needs to be chosen for the alert. If an alert should be sent if one of several conditions happens, there is the option of multi-selecting the alert conditions.
On top, you can choose to get a resolution notification as soon as the error condition is resolved.
At the multi-select table the devices, where the alert should be applied, need to be chosen. The select all option on the top left corner of the table select all devices on the page of the table. In order to search for the right devices, you find a search in the top right corner.
In the last step of the Alert creation process, the recipients need to be defined. By clicking on add an Email address can be added. There is no limitation on the number of recipients.
In the overview table where all created Alerts are displayed, they can be edited or deleted. In the last column, the action buttons for that can be found.
The editing workflow looks the same as the creation process.
