Procedure documentationEditing Notification Settings

 

You can be notified by the E2E Monitoring and Alerting Infrastructure when alerts occur. You can make the settings for sending notifications, on the following levels:

Level

You can set the default values for all System Monitoring alerts. Make these settings in the SAP Solution Manager Configuration (transaction SOLMAN_SETUP) in the step Start of the navigation path Technical Monitoring Next navigation step System Monitoring Next navigation step Configure Infrastructure Next navigation step Default Settings End of the navigation path. For more information, see the help for this step.

Template

(SAP or Customer)

You can overwrite the global settings on template level. These settings apply to all alert types of a template, in all managed objects for which this template is active.

Make these settings in the template, in the step Start of the navigation path Technical Monitoring Next navigation step Template Maintenance End of the navigation path.

Managed Object

You can overwrite the existing settings at global level or for specified templates or managed objects.

Make these settings in the SAP Solution Manager Configuration in the step Start of the navigation path Technical Monitoring Next navigation step Set Up Monitoring End of the navigation path, by selecting Maintain MO-Specific Settings. For more information, see Using Templates in the section Changing a Managed Object Directly.

Alert Type

Note Note

Notification settings on a more specific level overwrite those on a more general level.
