Setting Windows Intune Alert Type Thresholds

Updated: December 17, 2012

Applies To: Windows Intune

You can configure Windows Intune monitoring alerts to be reported according to specified thresholds that are unique to the particular alert. For example, a disk corruption failure on one computer in your organization might not represent a high priority, whereas the same problem on 10 percent of the computers would merit the attention of an administrator.

After you have configured a monitoring alert threshold, Windows Intune notifies you in the event that this threshold has been met or exceeded. Customizing alert thresholds enables you to be more proactive in identifying potential issues, evaluating the magnitude of the issue, and subsequently providing support before performance and productivity are affected.

Use the following procedure to configure alert thresholds.

To configure alert thresholds

  1. Open the Windows Intune administrator console.

  2. To open the Configure Alert Type dialog box, do one of the following:

    • Click System Overview. Hover over an alert type in the Top 3 Alert Types list and click the pencil icon.

    • Click Alerts. Hover over an alert type in the Alert Types summary list and click the pencil icon.

    • Click the Administration icon, and under Alerts and Notifications, click Monitoring. Do one of the following:

      • If you know the category of the alert type that you want to enable or disable and you want to search for it, select the category under Alert Types.

      • If you know the name of the alert type that you want to enable or disable and you want to search for it, type the full or partial name of the alert type in the Search alert types box.

      • Browse the list of alert types to locate the alert type that you want to enable or disable.

      • Select the alert type that you want to configure. You may also select multiple alert types to configure by holding CTRL and selecting the alert types.

        When multi-selecting alert types, you cannot configure the specific settings, only the shared settings.

      • On the taskbar, click Configure.

  3. In the Configure Alert Type: dialog box, each Monitoring alert has a Display Threshold field under Manage Shared Settings. Set this field to either:

    1. Display all – This setting will display the alert as soon as it occurs.

    2. Enter value – This setting takes a parameter to specify the percentage of devices that must meet the criteria before the alert is triggered. The valid range for this field is 1 – 99, inclusive.

    On any alert configuration screen, if you have modified a setting, you may click Use Default to revert the value of that setting. You may also click Use All Defaults to reset all settings to their default values.

  4. Depending on the monitoring alert type you have selected, other threshold options might appear under Manage specific settings. Enter the required information in the appropriate boxes. For more information on specific settings for alert types, see the Windows Intune Technical Reference for Alerts and Monitoring.

  5. Click OK to save your changes.

    If an alert type threshold is modified, any currently active alerts of that type will stay in the system, but no new alerts will be triggered until the new threshold limits are met.
