Events Reporting ConfigurationEdit

The Events Reporting Rules list is empty by default. Before you can begin configuration you must add at least one new rule. This can be done by clicking the 'Add' button:


After adding a rule you should be redirected to its configuration page.

Send email

When an Events Reporting rule is configured to send emails, the device (this RUTX08) will connect to an existing email account when a user specified trigger event occurs and send an email to another email address informing of the occurred event.

In order to send emails, the device requires access to an existing email account. You can configure email accounts in the System → Administration → Recipients page. Allowing access to less secure apps may be required for some email service providers.
