Create and manage alerts

Contributors netapp-reenu Download PDF of this page

Alerts are messages that are either triggered automatically or created manually to share information about critical events within your environment.

When you provision storage, automatic alerts are triggered in the following scenarios:

  • The new disk or file share pushes the subscription into burst

  • The new disk or file share is provisioned on a new subscription

  • The consumed capacity within the subscription has crossed the threshold capacity, or is close to the committed capacity

The Alerts screen enables you to view the system-generated and user-generated alerts in your environment.

You can also create custom alerts and display them to other users. They can view and dismiss the alerts for themselves and other users within their tenancy, as required.

Create an alert in your multitenant environment

If you are a partner admin, you can manually create and send alerts to a single tenant or all the tenants in your environment.

Note You can dismiss an alert that you created. However, it is dismissed only for tenants who have not viewed it yet.
Steps
  1. Select ADMINISTRATION > Alerts from the menu.

  2. Click Create alert.

  3. On Create alert screen, select the status and the tenant that you want to send the alert to, and add the message.

    Note If you want to send the alert to all the tenants in your environment, select "All".
  4. Click Create.
    The new alert is created.
