Online Documentation for SQL Backup for SQL Server

Configure policy notifications

You can configure notifications that will inform you about policy execution result via e-mail.


Notification parameters are set on the third step of the policy wizard.


You need to set an action on which notifications should be sent:

  • When the policy succeeds - send the message when policy tasks have been successfully completed;
  • When the policy fails - send the message when policy has failed;
  • When the policy completes - send the message when policy has been launched.


In the Send E-mail To field enter the e-mail address of the administrator that should receive messages generated on policy execution.


SQL Server Agent must be configured to use Database Mail for sending e-mail.


Note: Email agent options should be set for the service at Server-side components Properties.
