Examples

Create a trigger action

Create an action that will be run when a trigger from host “30045” that has the word “memory” in its name goes into problem state. The action must first send a message to all users in user group “7”. If the event is not resolved in 4 minutes, it will run script “3” on all hosts in group “2”. On trigger recovery it will notify all users who received any messages regarding the problem before. On trigger acknowledge, message with custom subject and body will be sent to all who left acknowledgements and comments via all media types.
