sp_update_notification must be run from the msdb database.

You can update a notification for an operator who does not have the necessary address information using the specified notification_method. If a failure occurs when sending an e-mail message or pager notification, the failure is reported in the Microsoft SQL Server Agent error log.

To run this stored procedure, users must be granted the sysadmin fixed server role.

The following example modifies the notification method for notifications sent to François Ajenstat for the alert Test Alert.

USE msdb ;
GO

EXEC dbo.sp_update_notification
   @alert_name = N'Test Alert',
   @operator_name = N'François Ajenstat',
   @notification_method = 7;
GO
