When you create a subscription to be notified of Operations Manager alerts, you must specify the criteria or conditions that determine the alerts that will generate a notification. The following illustration shows the conditions you can choose from.

List of conditions for alerts

When you select a condition, it is added to the Criteria description. In the Criteria description box, the word specific is blue and underlined, and is a placeholder for the value for the condition. Click specific to set the value for that condition.

For example, for the condition of a specific severity, click specific, and then select from the available values: Information, Warning, and Critical.

When you create a notification subscription from an alert that has been generated, the conditions for the subscription are configured automatically with values from the specific alert.
