Event-triggered alerts

Event-triggered alerts are notifications that Unica Plan sends in response to system events.

They track changes that already occurred. For example, when someone creates an approval, the system sends the user who is its approver an alert.

Unica Plan can send notifications for event-triggered alerts almost immediately after they occur. Each time an event that triggers an alert occurs (such as a new approval request), Unica Plan adds it to a queue. At a specified interval, Unica Plan checks the queue and sends out notifications for all of the waiting events. By default, this interval, or polling period, is every 5 seconds. You can change this default frequency by setting the notifyEventMonitorPollPeriod property: Click Settings > Configuration > Plan > umoConfiguration > Notifications.

For information about all of the event-related configuration properties, see the Unica Plan Installation Guide.
