Before you can build notification plans for Rackspace Intelligence, you must define notification methods. For example, you can define a method of contacting a support engineer by SMS and a method of contacting a manager by email.

You can create the following types of notifications:

To create new notifications or edit your existing notifications, click Notify at the top of the Rackspace interface, and then click Notifications.

Sort the list of notifications by name or type. For example, sorting by type groups everyone who prefers to be notified by email.

For each notification, the Detail field contains specific contact information such as an email ID or a telephone number.

  2. Enter a name for the notification, and choose a notification type.

  4. Click Save Notification.

The notification appears on the Notifications page.
