6.4.4. Deleting Notification Methods

Existing relationships between methods and probes can complicate the process of deleting notification methods. Follow these steps to remove a notification method:
  1. Log into the Satellite as a Satellite Administrator or Monitoring Administrator.
  2. Navigate to the MonitoringNotifications page and click the name of the method to be removed.
  3. On the UserUser DetailsNotification Methods tab, click delete method. If the method is not associated with any probes, you are presented with a confirmation page. Click Confirm Deletion. The notification method is removed.

    Note

    Since both the notification method name and address can be edited, consider updating the method rather than deleting it. This redirects notifications from all probes using the method without having to edit each probe and create a new notification method.
  4. If the method is associated with one or more probes, you are presented with a list of the probes using the method and the systems to which the probes are attached instead of a confirmation page. Click the probe name to go directly to the System DetailsProbes tab.
  5. Select another notification method and click Update Probe.
  6. Return to the MonitoringNotifications page and delete the notification method.
