When you create an alert rule, you can specify a contact group as the receiver of alert notifications. If the alert rule is triggered, Application Real-Time Monitoring Service (ARMS) sends alert notifications to the contacts in the contact group. This topic describes how to create a contact group.

Prerequisites

. For more information, see Create contacts.

Procedure

  1. Log on to the ARMS console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Alerts > Contacts.
  3. On the Contact Group tab, click Create a contact group in the upper-right corner.
  4. In the Create a contact group dialog box, enter a group name in the Group Name field, select alert contacts in the Alarm contact list, and then click OK.
    Note If no alert contacts are displayed in the Alarm contact list, you must first create an alert contact. For more information, see Create contacts.

What to do next

  • To search for a contact group, go to the Contact Group tab, enter the contact group name or keywords of the name in the search box, and then click the icon.
    Notice The search is case-sensitive.
  • To edit a contact group, click the pencil_01 icon to the right of the contact group. In the Edit Contact Group dialog box, edit the contact group and click OK.

    Note You can remove one or more contacts from a contact group in shown mode. To remove a contact, find the alert contact and click Remove in the Operation column.
  • To delete a contact group, click the delete_01 icon to the right of the contact group. In the dialog box that appears, click OK.
