How To: Use Issue Definitions and Notifications

Yottaa offers the ability to track the current requests, automate actions based on thresholds the user sets, and notify portal users in the event that the threshold has been crossed.

To get started setting up your Issue Definition, select the Issue Definition tab in the left side column in the Yottaa portal:

Select the "New Issue Definition option in the top right corner:


Define the issue you wish to monitor:

1. Select a severity level.
    Issues are broken into 3 severity levels

  • Fatal    
  • Critical
  • Warning

Note: These severity levels will correspond to the user’s notification settings, determining which parties are to receive the email when triggered.

2.  Give the Alert a meaningful name that indicates its purpose.
3.  Select a threshold parameter:
