The Notify Operator task sends notification messages to SQL Server Agent operators. A SQL Server Agent operator is an alias for a person or group that can receive electronic notifications. For more information about SQL Server operators, see Operators.
By using the Notify Operator task, a package can notify one or more operators via e-mail, pager, or net send. Each operator can be notified by different methods. For example, OperatorA is notified by e-mail and pager, and OperatorB is notified by pager and net send. The operators who receive notifications from the task must be members of the OperatorNotify collection on the Notify Operator task.
The Notify Operator task is the only database maintenance task that does not encapsulate a Transact-SQL statement or a DBCC command.
