Creating and Copying a Notification

 

Junos Space Service Insight provides the Create Notifications opiton in the Notifications task to create notifications by specifying when you want Service Insight to send notifications and the recipients of the notification. While creating the notification, you can define tfilters that specify the trigger events, and the recepients and the destinations for SNMP traps to which Service Insight should send the notifications.

This topic provides procedures for creating and copying notifications.
