This topic describes how to create an alert contact and an alert contact group, and add the contact to the group. With this configuration, contacts in the alert contact group can receive alert notification.

Background information

CloudMonitor sends alert notification based on alert contacts and contact groups. To receive alert notification, you must first create an alert contact and an alert contact group, add the contact to the contact group, and then select the contact group when creating an alarm rule.

An alert contact group is a group of one or more alert contacts. An alert contact can be added to multiple alert contact groups. In alert rule configurations, alert notification receivers are alert contact groups, not alert contacts.

Prerequisites

An alert contact is created and the contact information is correct.
