Create Notification Subscriptions in Operations Manager 2007 SP1

Updated: November 25, 2008

Applies To: Operations Manager 2007 SP1

Subscriptions are designed to decrease the overhead of configuring and maintaining a notification. An Operations Manager 2007 administrator or user first creates a subscription for a notification. In the subscription, the administrator or user specifies all the formats and devices that send the notifications. Users can then subscribe to this notification. While subscribing to a subscription, operators can specify how they prefer to receive the notification from the available notification channels, such as by e-mail or instant message, and whether they would like a long or short message.

The following procedures detail the steps needed to configure a subscription so that users assigned the Operator role can subscribe to specified alerts. A recipient can be an individual user account or a distribution list. Before beginning this procedure you must enable a notification channel and then create a notification recipient. There are two procedures – one performed by an administrator and one by a non-administrator.
