About the Action Library

How to get here

The Action Library shows all of the actions configured for your network. These actions can be assigned to any device or monitor, or included in an action policy. When you assign the action to a device or monitor, you specify the state change that will trigger the action.

To open the Action Library, from the main menu of the WhatsUp Gold console, select Configure > Action Library.

From this dialog, you can:

Note: Be aware that when you remove an action from the Action Library, you are removing that action from all action policies, as well as all devices and monitors that the action is assigned to. In addition, all statistics relating to that action are also deleted from the database. When you first open the Action Library, if you have not yet defined an Action, you will see the default Web Alarm, which you can assign to any device or Monitor.
