ForwardingSeverity Property

This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.

The ForwardingSeverity property restricts forwarded events by the severity of the error generating the event.


object.ForwardingSeverity [=value]


  • object
    An expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list

  • value
    A long integer from 1 through 25

Data Type




Prototype (C/C++)

HRESULT GetForwardingSeverity(LPLONG pRetVal);
HRESULT SetForwardingSeverity(LONG NewValue);


SQL Server Agent can be configured to forward events to another server running Microsoft SQL Server. The ForwardingSeverity property is one mechanism used to control the events forwarded.

Set ForwardingSeverityto restrict event forwarding to those events generated by errors with a severity greater than or equal to the property value. Event forwarding can be further restricted using the ForwardAlways property.
