[KPI Alert Rules] Mass subscription of Users via User Maps

Any User Map created in the system (at Admin > User Maps) can be used as a Subscription User Map for KPI Alert Rules.

  • For dimensioned Metrics: If the KPI Alert Rule is applied to a dimensioned Metric, make sure that a User Map includes a column with Dimension Values.
  • For simple (undimesnioned metrics):
  • User Map settings override individual and Group subscriptions defined by Admins. For example, if a User has been previously subscribed to all values of the "Country" dimension by individual/group subscription, but according to the User Map he only has access to "Germany" Dimension Value, once this User Map is applied to a KPI Alert rule, he will only be sudscribed to "Germany" Chart and only get data on Germany. Further subscription changes of this User can only be made via a User Map unless it is unapplied from an Alert.

NOTE: Personal User subscriptions are summed up with User Map subscriptions. For example, if a User is subscribed to Alerts per "Germany" via a User map and he additionally subscribes to "Spain" in the Metric Viewer, he will  receive Alert Notifications from both countries.

PREREQUISITES:

Create a User Map NOTE: The first column of a User Map is always treated as a Username column.

Can be used for: Managed and non-managed Alerts. For details refer to: Managed Alerting
