Output Tab

In the Global Notifications panel, in the Output tab ( netwitness_adminicon_25x22.png (Admin) > System > Global Notifications > Output), you configure notification outputs. Global Notifications configurations define notifications settings for Event Source Management (ESM), Health and Wellness, New Health and Wellness, Global Audit Logging, Event Stream Analysis (ESA), and Respond.

Notification Output configurations define email addresses and subject lines, SNMP trap OID settings, syslog output settings, and script code.

Notifications are the destinations configured for the alert notifications that are sent by ESA service. You can configure the following as destinations using the Output tab:

  • Email
  • SNMP
  • Syslog
  • Script

Note: You do not need to configure the Output tab for Global Audit Logging. For detailed steps, see Configure Global Audit Logging.
