public int MessageID { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32

An Int32 value that specifies the ID value of the message that causes the alert to be raised.

A SQL Server Agent alert is raised when a SQL Server process causes a specific error or an error of a specific severity. Setting the MessageID property of an Alert object associates an alert with a specific SQL Server system error message.

Setting both the MessageID and Severity properties of an Alert object attempts to associate an alert with both an error message and an error message severity level, which causes an exception.

SQL Server Agent alerts based on the MessageID property can be restricted to a specific database. Use the MessageID and DatabaseName properties of the Alert object to restrict alert activation.

Multiple alerts can be defined for a single error message, but each alert defined on the error message must be restricted to a specific database.
