Target affected users by groups

Use the By Groups tab to target groups of users based on their memberships in organizational hierarchical nodes and in distribution lists. Alerts generated from the event are sent to users in the selected groups.
The operator can also block recipient groups (exclude them from receiving alerts generated from the event).
The group target categories displayed are:
  • Organizational Hierarchy
    : If your system is set up for them. The "All User Base" is the first node that appears and is the only node from the hierarchy that appears when collapsed.
  • Distribution Lists
    : Static and dynamic
The administrator can restrict the contents of these categories for each operator. For example, an operator might have permission to view only one of four organizational hierarchies.
  1. In the
    Affected Users
    section, click the
    By Groups
    tab if it is not already selected.
  2. In the
    field, select the check box next to each group or distribution list that you want to target.
    If you select a group or distribution list that contains sub groups or sub distribution lists, those are also automatically selected. However, any of them can be manually deselected by clicking the check box next to its name. If you select all sub groups or sub distribution lists manually, the parent group or distribution list is not automatically selected.
    The presence of a black square (or a black hyphen if you are using
    Google Chrome
    ) in a check box indicates that some of its sub groups or sub distribution lists have been selected and some have not.
