Notifications can also run commands automatically when an alert is raised on a monitored system. A notification requires a channel, a subscriber, and a subscription.

You can create a notification subscription from an alert to ensure that you are notified if the alert is sent again. You can either create a new subscription or add the alert to an existing subscription. In the following procedure, you create a new subscription.
