Notifications are used to make sure the right people and right systems get notified when a problem occurs.Create a notification to specify that whenever a critical transition of a classifier state occurs, a contextual message is created and sent through a notifier.

Notifications use notifiers which leverage data integration routes. As such an infinite variation of notifications can be created:

  • Emails
  • Events in an internal alerting system
  • SMS
  • Web-service messages
  • ...

To create or configure a notification, you must have the Notification right.

How it works

Notifications only process live events

It should be noted that for one event, a notification, once triggered, will never be replayed. No notification is triggered for events taking place during catchup and recomputing.

The purpose of a notification is to send out an alert whenever the state of a classifier becomes critical. 

Four components are required for notifications to work:

  1. Notifiers – An alert model with a map of the key values. Notifiers are implemented by notifications and used as ID by DIMS and routes to retrieve alert messages. For more information, see Notifier configuration.
  2. Notifications – Monitor the changes of a classifier state and use notifiers to send alerts. For more information, see Alerting using notifications.
  3. Decision Insight Messaging System (DIMS) –Receives events from notifications. For more information, see General configuration.
  4. Routes – Connected to a DIMS notification event queue and used to send alerts to the outside world, for example, emails. For more information, see Notification route configuration.
