BW 3.0B - Alert Monitor Web Item

Post by Guest » Mon Oct 21, 2002 8:30 am

Has any one used Alert Mornitor web item in the web templates ? I do not seem to be having much luck in using it and getting the desired result.

We developed a query with exception for one key figure where exception values and cell restrications have been defined. Exception Reporting and Alerting was also run for the query using the report agent -> Exceptions option.

However, when we publish the web template, we just see the following in the browser:
Display drop down list box listing few descriptions such as 'From InfoAreas', 'From InfoProviders', 'From Queries' etc ... Next to the drop down list box, red yellow and green icon along with it's check box.

Whatever the option is selected from the drop down list box, nothing happens i.e. the actual exceptions along with their either values or indicators for the key figure are not displayed.

Thanks in advance.

I use it and have had no problem. You have to make sure that you schedule a setting in the reporting agent to run and a follow up action to send the exception to a user or roles alert monitor entry.

Hi Jlaruss,

Thanks for the reply and helpful hint. The issue was mainly due to follow up action setting. I am now getting some info displayed though not in the format I expected. I will play around a bit and see if I am able to achieve the desried result or not.

Thanks and regards,
