About the Alert Definitions Page


To access this page, select Monitor > Alarms & Alerts > Alert Definitions in the Administration Portal.

Use the Alert Definitions page to manage alert definitions for SD-WAN and view alert definitions for security. An alert definition consists of data criterion for triggering alerts about issues in the SD-WAN environment. Alert definitions also define the necessary action required to resolve issues based on the severity of the alert. An alert is triggered when the event threshold exceeds the data criteria that is defined. You can create an alert definition to monitor your data in real time and identify issues and attacks before they impact your network.
