Emails are sent in plain text.

  2. Complete the To, CC, BCC, Name, and Reply Address fields.

    Messaging is disabled if both Subject and URL fields are empty.

    4. Click Build Selected Variable.
  7. Provide the URL of your alert email.

  8. If the web server of the URL you want to email requires user access authentication, provide both the Web Server UserID and the Web Server Password in the Optional Web Server Authentication area.
  9. Click Time of Day, and then enter the time period and select the days when you want to activate your alert action.
  10. If you want to enable alert escalation, click Alert Escalation, and then check any of the following options, as appropriate for your alert:

    • To disable the action when the alert has been acknowledged, check Do not execute this Action if the Alert has been Acknowledged.
    • To execute the action repeatedly, as long as the trigger condition exists, check Execute this Action repeatedly while the Alert is Triggered and then provide an appropriate action execution interval.
    • To delay alert action execution, check Delay the execution of this Action, and then provide an appropriate interval for the alert engine to wait after the alert condition is met before executing the alert action.
  11. If you are finished configuring your URL email alert action, click OK.
