Edit community names for SNMP traps


You can edit community names for SNMP traps, and also associate a different community name to an SNMP trap destination.

Before you begin

A community name must be created, consisting of only printable ASCII characters. The community name, which is a string that acts like a password for the network servers, is created by a network administrator.

  1. Select Settings  Alerts.

  2. Select the SNMP tab.

    The trap destinations and community names appear in the table.

  3. Edit community names as follows:

    • To edit a community name, select Configure Communities. Enter the new community name, and then click Save. Community names can consist of only printable ASCII characters.

    • To associate a community name to a new trap destination, select the community name from the table, and then click the Edit (pencil) icon on the far right. From the Community Name drop-down, select a new community name for an SNMP trap destination, and then click the Save (checkmark) icon.


      If you want to cancel changes, select the Cancel (X) icon.


The SNMP tab of the Alerts page displays the updated communities.
