Alerts Viewer

  • Last updated on

The Alerts Viewer is designed for network operation centers' wallboards and displays. It shows alerts, based on time received, in descending order. Audible cues can be configured to notify operators that new alerts have arrived. The Alerts Viewer is a reference tool, not an investigative tool, that provides read-only information.

You can display between 10 and 1,000 alerts in the Alerts Viewer.

Operators using the Alerts Viewer must belong to a role that grants them access to Alerts Viewer. See Adding a Role to a User Account.

  • Users that have access to the Alerts Viewer see all sites regardless of permissions.
  • The Alerts Viewer uses Ajax technologies so that new alerts automatically stream into the window without needing to refresh.

To set the sounds for different alerts in the Alerts Viewer window

Replacing the alert sounds is an option for self-hosted environments only.

From the Set Alert Tone Option list, select one of the following options.

  • No sound No sound is played for any alert.
  • All sounds All sounds are played for all alerts.
  • Sitenotcommunicating A sound is played only when a site is not communicating.
  • Device down A sound is played only when a device is down.

To customize the sounds, overwrite the .mp3 files with those of your choosing. The .mp3 files are located on the device where Service Center is installed.

  • alerttone_devicedown.mp3

  • alerttone_sitedown.mp3
