Need for Alert Consumer Creation
This blog is continuation of alert configuration made easy blog posted before
If you haven’t gone through it you can refer it using following URL:
You can consider this blog as alert configuration – Part 2
Below you can find what happened after Part 1?
We deployed alert configuration in production environment and when we created task for AlertConsumerJob. We observed a huge inflow of alert emails due to pre defined activated alert rules in environment
To avoid this issue we can create a separate alert consumer for this task,alert rule and mention it while creating them
First of all we need to enable web services navigator.
We need to perform java cluster restart so that changes will be applied
Alert consumer creation procedure:
Go to webservices navigator->Select service interface as provider system and select AlertRuleIn->Select RegisterConsumer Operation->Specify AlertRuleID and ConsumerName->Click on Invoke
This will help in triggering only that particular alert rule for AlertConsumerJob and avoids other alert rules that we do not want to be executed
Hope this information helps you
