Modify multiple alerts or share alerts
Use the Alert Manager to bulk edit multiple alerts. You can enable or disable multiple alerts or add pre-configured actions.
Alerts must be enabled to be executed. For example, if an alert is scheduled to run for a short period of time each year, it must be enabled so the schedule runs. A disabled alert will not be executed, even if it is scheduled to run.
Add actions to alerts without opening the Alert Wizard
Assign actions that you have already configured to alerts. You can assign multiple actions to multiple alerts. Actions are categorized into trigger and reset actions based on how the action was created in the Alert Wizard.
SolarWinds does not provide generic actions due to the differences in intent behind trigger and reset actions. For example, a trigger action to send an email is usually a notification that an event happened, while the associated reset action is usually a notification that the event has been resolved.
Share alerts with others
SolarWinds customers share their customized alerts in the SolarWinds THWACK community. Visit THWACK.solarwinds.com to download and import alerts created by others.
Export an alert to save the alert definition as an XML file on your local computer. Alerts are exported to XML and can only be imported from XML. You can send this file to other coworkers or share it in the SolarWinds THWACK community.
Before you share an alert, check the exported file for confidential information, such as SMTP server credentials, and delete before making it public. Also review your company policy on sharing this type of file.
