Working with Notifications Settings

The Audit Log's Notifications settings allow you to manage the SNMP, Syslog, or SMTP method of sending notifications for an event code, and to bulk import notifications for event codes.

When a notification is configured for an event code, an SNMP trap is sent if SNMP is selected, an e-mail is sent if SMTP is selected, and a syslog event is logged if Syslog is selected.

  1. Navigate to the Audit Log configuration dialog as described in Accessing the Audit Log Configuration Settings.
  2. Select one or more of the three delivery methods for each Audit Log event code that should provide a notification; SNMP, Syslog, SMTP.
  3. To bulk import notifications, browse to and select the file containing the notifications you wish to upload, and then select Bulk Import Notifications.
    Warning: This operation will overwrite all saved definitions. Contact Vocera Support if you have questions about this feature.
    The format of the file must be similar to the example below. Use a line for each type (smtp, snmp, syslog) followed by a comma-separated list of events that should be turned on for that service.
  4. To add a new notification, click the + button in the lower right corner of the Notifications section.
    A dialog displays.
  5. Choose an audit event in the Event Code dropdown list, and select the SNMP, Syslog, or SMTP destination for the audit event.
  6. Select one of the following options to exit the new notification dialog.
    • Select Add Alarm to add the notification to Audit Log.
    • Select Cancel to close the dialog with making a change.
  7. Select Close to exit the Notifications configuration dialog.
    The Audit Log section displays.
