The AddNotification method associates operators with alerts. Designated operators receive notification messages when an event raising an alert occurs. When an alert is raised, notification can be sent using e-mail, network pop-up message, or pager. The AddNotification method allows specification of one or more notification mechanisms when operators are assigned notification for an alert.

The RemoveNotification method removes all operator notification mechanisms for an alert. Use the UpdateNotification method to alter the notification mechanism without dropping the association between an alert and the operator.
