Cloud Monitor sends alert notifications to alert contacts and alert groups. You must first create an alert contact and an alert group, and then add the alert contact to the alert group. After that, you can specify the alert group to receive alert notifications when you create an alert rule.

Create an alert contact

An alert contact can be added to multiple alert groups. In alert rule configurations, alert notification recipients are alert groups, not alert contacts.

  1. Log on to the Cloud Monitor console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Alerts > Alert Contacts.
  3. On the Alert Contacts tab of the Alert Contacts page, click Create Alert Contact.
  4. In the Set Alert Contact pane, set the Name, Email ID, and DingTalk Robot parameters.
  5. Click OK.

Create an alert group

An alert group is a group of one or more alert contacts. In alert rule configurations, alert notification recipients are alert groups, not alert contacts.

  1. Log on to the Cloud Monitor console.
  2. Click the Alert Contact Group tab.
  3. On the Alert Contact Group tab, click Create Alert Contact Group.
  4. In the Create Alert Contact Group pane, specify the alert group name and add alert contacts to the alert group.
  5. Click Confirm.
