No headers

You can enable WHD to send an email notification to a tech, level techs, or a group manager when a new ticket is created. This notification is sent to one or more recipients when:

  • A client creates or updates a ticket using the client user interface or email
  • A new ticket is created or updated using the REST API
  • A new ticket is created or updated from a SolarWinds Integration alert

All selected recipients receive email notifications regardless of their individual tech preferences for email notifications.

  1. Click Setup and select Techs > Tech Groups.
  2. Click a group in the Group Name column that will receive email alerts when a new ticket is opened.
  3. Click the Tech Group Levels tab.
  4. Select a tech group level in the Level column.

    If you select Level Techs, the email is filtered by Location Group and Department Group membership.

    If the ticket has no Location Group or Department Group or the Ignore Location and Department check box is selected in the level, all members receive an email notification.
