Using Alerts

IAS Log Viewer can generate notifications about specified events. For sample you may configure alerts for sending email while user “Ray” still online more then 10 minutes. You may configure alerts for external application calls while any users from group “home” finish connect.
At first you need to configure alerts:

Alerts dialog

In opened dialog you can add or remove alert. You may specify alert caption, condition and state.
You may select one of alert types:

  • EMail for sending email while alert fired
  • Event Log Message for write message into standard Windows event log
  • Ext. program call for run external application with command line switches

Stop next alerts processing while this alert fired flag allows to stopping processing list of alerts if current alert was fired.
Be attentive while using this flag. Because all alerts that placed below current alert will stop checking if current alert was fired. You may change alerts order by using “Move up” and “Move down” buttons in toolbar.

In the alert’s result message (email message, event log message, command for ext. program call) you may using some macros. Any macros name contain connect column name and enclosed by % char. For sample you may use command ping %UserIP% -t for run ping command. You may write “User %UserName% was login with IP %ClientIP%" email message for receiving information about user login.

Alerts start working with “active log” or “active directory” data only. Please, be sure, that you working with active data (log files that currently used by IAS service). After any alert was fired you may see third tab named “Alerts” on IAS Log Viewer main window. This tab contains all information about executed alerts.
