Accessing the Rule Manager utility

The commands for configuring the service are all accessed through the Rule Manager icon in the VEA Control Panel. The Control Panel is available as a perspective in the Perspective Bar on the left side of VEA window. In the tree view, select actionagent and double-click the Rule Manager icon to bring up the Rule Manager window. All functions relating to event notification rules are initiated from this window.

From the Rule Manager, you can create, enable, disable, modify, and delete rules relating to event notification. The Configure Mail button is used to configure settings, such as the settings for the SMTP mail server and the recipient list of people or groups to be notified when the conditions of a specified rule are met.

For details on creating rules, see the "Optional Rules for Handling Events" online help module. To access this module, select Contents from the Help menu.
