Online Documentation for SQL Manager for SQL server


An operator is the object that represents a single SQL Server operator. SQL Server operators receive alert and job status notification in response to events generated by the server. You can assign alert notifications and job notifications for any operator defined for the instance of SQL Server.


Before using SQL Server operators, make sure that the SQL Server Agent service is running.


Operator Editor allows you to define operator properties. It opens automatically when you create a new operator and is available on editing an existing one.


To open an operator in Operator Editor, double-click it in the DB Explorer tree or in the Operators manager. Alternatively, you can right-click the operator alias and select the Edit Operator context menu item.



To create, edit, rename and drop operators, you can also use the context menu and the Navigation bar of Operators manager.
