Adding or Modifying an Alert Subscription

Use the Properties view to subscribe to an alert or edit an alert subscription.

Specify the e-mail server to which SAP Control Center will send e-mail alert notifications.

Each alert can support one subscription. To change addresses, modify the alert’s existing subscription.

Note: E-mail notifications are sent from an address of the form SybaseControlCenter@yourdomain—for example, Make sure your mail system does not block or filter that address.

    • Click Add to create a subscription, or
