    Alerts and Notification Overview

    Alerts and notifications provide options for:

    • Defining alert criteria based on a set of predefined filters. You can use the filters defined in the Filter Management window on the Event Viewer page to generate alerts.
    • Generating an alert message and notifying you when an alert criteria is met.
    • Searching specific alert ID on the generate alerts page.
    • Supporting event-based alerts.

    For example: If you are an administrator, you can define a condition such hat if the number of firewall-deny events crosses a predefined threshold in a given time range for a specific device, you receive an e-mail alert.

    Note: If threshold is crossed and remains for a long duration, new alerts are not generated. Alerts are generated again when the number of logs matching the alert criteria drops below the threshold and crosses the threshold, again.

    Understanding Role-Based Access Control for the Alerts and Alert Definitions

    Role-based access control (RBAC) has the following impact on the alerts:

    You must have the following permission under Role Based Access Controls>Roles:

    • Alerts to view generated alerts.
    • CreateAlert to create alerts generation.
    • ModifyAlert to modify alerts generation.
    • DeleteAlert to delete alerts generation.
    • User account under Role based access control to search for user accounts in alert definition.
