Notification profiles are a way of designing flexible notifications for a contact. It is now possible for a single contact to define all these notifications:
- Receive SMS notifications 24×7 for critical states for my billing application
- Receive SMS during non working hours for the production email system
- Receive RSS for production database systems, from the 2nd notification onwards
- Receive RSS and emails for all state changes for all objects
For any given problem, a contact will not receive more than 1 notification for each notification method.
A notification profile is contact specific, so a contact can only change their own profiles (CONFIGURESAVE access rights allow changes to other contact's notification profiles). The available objects to select is based on the contact's access rights to objects.
