Managing alerting jobs

You can suspend alerting if you need to suspend the jobs, change the scheduling or change the number of jobs. When you resume alerting, all changes since the last time the job ran will be detected. This may result in users receiving alerts with a larger than usual number of changes detected.


  1. In iBase Designer, select Tools > Feature Availiabilty > Alerting Configuration.
  2. Select the action for your alerting jobs:
    • To view the status of your alerting jobs, select the Status tab. For each alerting job, the page displays the job number, the date and time that the job last ran and the time it took to complete in seconds.
    • To disable your alerting jobs, click Schedule and then turn off Enable. This will not remove the alerting jobs, it just prevents them from running until you enable them again.
    • To suspend alerting jobs, click Suspend Alerting. This will remove the alerting jobs so that you can change the number of jobs. Any alert definitions and alerts in the database are hidden. When you are ready to start alerting, click Resume Alerting. This creates new alerting jobs that you will need to schedule. Any alert definitions and alerts in the database become visible.
    • To remove alerting, click Remove Alerting.
      Note: When you remove alerting, you delete the alerting jobs as well as all alert definitions and alerts in the database. If Audit History was already turned on when alerting was initialized then it will be left on.
