I'd like to set up email notifications so that only alerts of HIGH severity are sent.

Is this possible?

    Thank you for your post into the forum.

    Unfortunately you cannot send e-mail based upon just upon the severity of the alert. I can submit a feature request, if you so wish, to send e-mail notification based upon the severity.

    You can set up some customization of the e-mail notification details can be found in this link to the HELP article.

    Please reply if you wish to submit the feature request.

    Many Thanks

  • Thanks Eddie,

    I do believe this would be a very useful feature. While I'm aware that you can set up email alerts per alert type, I don't want to be receiving emails every time there's a block or long running query, rather I'd like to be alerted by email in "dire" situations.

    Thank you for your reply.

    I have submiited a feature request for the SQL Monitor Development Team to consider, to generate e-mail notifications based upon the severity. The reference for this request is SRP-5153.

    I cannot guarantee the success of the request submitted or if approval is given the future version of SQL Monitor it will appear in.

    Many thanks for your suggestion.

    Best Regards

  • Thanks,

    In the meantime my solution is to write rules in my email client to automatically delete emails containing the text "Raised - Low"; which is an OK solution but not watertight.

    Fingers crossed!
