You can assign alerts to users or groups of users in one of two ways, manually or automatically.
- Manually assigning alerts: You can manually assign an alert to any individual user, as required. This is done from the Alert Console (as described here); click in the Assignee column and then search for the relevant group or user in the displayed list. A notification is automatically sent to the assignee(s).
- Automatic assignment of alerts: During the creation/editing of an alert, you can automatically assign the alert to a group. The members of the selected group will be assigned the alert on a round-robin basis; this round-robin process is arbitrary within the group members. Note that you can change the assigned user/group manually, as described above. For more information about working with groups, see Managing Users and Groups.
