Before you enable or create DPA alerts or schedule reports, define the contacts and contact groups who can receive the alerts and reports.

Create a contact

Contacts are people who can receive email notifications when an alert is triggered, or who can receive scheduled reports through email. When you define an alert or schedule a report, you can select the recipient from the list of available contacts.

  1. Click Options on the DPA menu bar.
  2. Click the Administration tab, and choose Contacts and Contact Groups.
  3. In the Email Contacts section, click Create Contact.
  4. Enter the contact's name and email address. Optionally, add the contact to an existing group.

  1. Click Options on the DPA menu bar.
  2. Click the Administration tab, and choose Contacts and Contact Groups.
  3. In the Groups section, click Create Group.
  4. Enter a group name and description. Optionally, add existing contacts to the group.
