This solution article shows you how to configure the event notifications and delivery settings. This will help minimize or limit the alert notifications sent to the administrator.

To configure event notifications:

  1. Select the events for which you need notifications.
    1. Log on to the Security Server web console.
    2. Go to Preferences > Notifications.
