You can assign rules to specific console users by adding them as a subscriber. The system will notify each subscriber when the subscribed rule triggers an alert. These alerts display in the Monitor view for each subscriber.

You can use rule subscriptions in conjunction with filters and reports to monitor activity for specific rules. Each user can subscribe to as many different rules as required. You can also assign subscriptions in Rule Creation while you are creating the rule or at a later time from the Rules grid.

Subscribe users from the Rules grid

  1. Open the Build > Rules view.
  2. In the Rule Categories & Tags pane, maximize the category that contains your targeted rule.
  3. In the Rules grid, select the targeted rule.
  4. In the Rules grid toolbar, click the Subscribe drop-down menu.

    This menu contains console users who are associated with the same manager as the selected rule. A check box with a gray background indicates the user is subscribed to one or more of the selected rules, but not all rules.

  5. Select one or more users to subscribe to the rule.

    • Select a clear check box to subscribe the user to all selected rules.
    • Clear a gray check box to remove the user subscription to all selected rules.
  6. Click Subscribe again to close the list.

    The selected console users are subscribed to the selected rules.
