When an alert rule is triggered, notifications are sent to the contact group that you specified. Before you create a contact group, you must create contacts. When you create a contact, you can specify a mobile number and an email address on which the contact can receive notifications. You can also provide the webhook URL of a DingTalk chatbot that can be used to automatically send alert notifications.

Prerequisites

To add a DingTalk chatbot as a contact, you must first obtain the webhook URL of the chatbot. For more information, see Configure a DingTalk chatbot to send alert notifications.

Procedure

  1. Log on to the ARMS console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane of the console, choose Alerts > Contacts.
  3. On the Contact tab, click New contact in the upper-right corner.
  4. In the New contact dialog box, edit the contact information, specify whether to receive system notifications, and click OK.
    • To add a contact, set the Name, Mobile phone number and Mailbox parameters.
      Note You must set the Mobile phone number parameter, the Mailbox parameter, or both. Each mobile number or email address can be used for only one contact. You can create a maximum of 100 contacts.
    • To add a DingTalk chatbot, enter the name and the webhook URL of the chatbot.
      Note For information about how to obtain the webhook URL of a DingTalk chatbot, see Configure a DingTalk chatbot to send alert notifications.
