Setting up notification method for job status

To receive notifications for the job status (successful or failed), you need to create notification method in System Settings > Notifications. When you create a job, you can select the notification method for the job. For more information on jobs, see Jobs.

  1. Go to System Settings > Notifications > Notifications.
  2. Click Create. The New Notifications window will open.

    Caution: If you enter a domain name, you must also configure the FortiWeb Manager appliance with at least one DNS server. Failure to configure a DNS server may cause the FortiWeb Manager appliance to be unable to resolve the domain name, and therefore unable to send the alert.
