Alert trigger customization is a lightweight monitoring feature provided by the Monitor module.

You can customize an alert trigger by setting the following parameters:
  • Object: the monitored object. You can specify nodes, baselines, workflows, and workspaces as objects.
  • Trigger Condition: the conditions for triggering alerts. Valid values: Completed, Uncompleted, Error, Cycle Uncompleted, and Overtime.
  • Notification Method: the method of reporting alerts. Valid values: SMS and Email.
  • Maximum Alerts: the maximum number of alert reporting times. If the number of alerting times exceeds the preset threshold, no alerts are generated.
  • Minimum Alert Interval: the minimum time interval at which DataWorks reports alerts.
  • Quiet Hours: the specified period during which no alerts are reported.
  • Recipient: the person who receives alerts. You can set this parameter to the node owner or another recipient.
Alert triggers support the following trigger conditions: Completed, Uncompleted, Error, Cycle Uncompleted, and Overtime.
  • Completed

    A completion alert can be set for nodes, baselines, workflows, and workspaces. After all nodes of the preset objects are completed, the completion alert is reported. If you set a completion alert for a baseline, the alert is reported when all nodes of the baseline are completed.

  • Uncompleted

    You can set alerts for nodes, baselines, workflows, or workspaces that are not completed at a certain time point. For example, if you require that a baseline be completed at 10:00, an alert containing a list of uncompleted nodes is reported after a node in the baseline is not completed at the specified time.

  • Error

    An error alert can be set for nodes, baselines, workflows, and workspaces. If a node has an error, an alert containing detailed node error information is sent to the recipient.

  • Cycle Uncompleted

    In the alert triggers of hourly scheduled nodes, you can separately specify the uncompleted time points in different cycles.

  • Overtime

    An overtime alert can be set for nodes, baselines, workflows, and workspaces. If a monitored node of the preset object is not completed within the specified time, an alert is reported.
