Note: Notifications displayed on a map are for open alerts only and are based on the date range you’ve selected. For example, if you’re looking at data for the last 10 minutes, the notifications displayed are from alerts opened in the last 10 minutes. Alerts that were opened outside of that timeframe, or that have been cleared or dismissed, won’t display on the map.
How to add a map overlay notification channel
There’s a preconfigured map overlay notification channel. You can customize the colors for the alert severity levels on this preconfigured channel. You can also create your own notification channel.
Notification channels added from your MSP dashboard are available to all your clients. To add a new channel for a specific client, add the channel from that client’s dashboard.
- Click Manage Alerts in the side navigation bar. Click Notification Channels.
- Click Add Notification Channel.
- Enter a name for the channel.
- Select the Contact Method of Map.
- Select a new color for each listed severity by clicking the corresponding color palette or entering a hex code.
- Click Save
Now that the new notification channel has been created, remember to associate it to the alerts you want to see on the map. The map notification channel must be associated to alerts from both your MSP dashboard and your client dashboard if you want to see notifications on both maps. If you only want to see the notifications on your client network map, associate from the client’s dashboard.
