Notification Rules

General

Storware Backup & Recovery allows a Notification Rules feature to create a semi-custom rule that will send notifications triggered by an event specified in a rule. Go to Settings on the left menu and then click on the Notification Rules button.

Creating new Notification Rule

To create a new rule, simply click on Create button. A new window will appear.
Fill in a name for your rule, set your notification to active and add one or more conditions from a list.
For some conditions, you will need to provide more information, for example, choose TaskType.
The last step is to add an action with related recipients. Click Add Action button, choose Action Type from a list, add one or more recipients passing their email addresses.
After an event that will trigger a notification, all recipients who have been added to the notification rule will receive an email notification.
