Namespace: Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Agent
Assembly: Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo (in microsoft.sqlserver.smo.dll)

public void AddNotification (
	string alertName,
	NotifyMethods notifymethod
public void AddNotification (
	String alertName, 
	NotifyMethods notifymethod
public function AddNotification (
	alertName : String, 
	notifymethod : NotifyMethods



A String value that specifies the name of the alert.


A NotifyMethods object value that specifies the method of notification, such as e-mail, net-send, or pager.

The AddNotification method associates operators with alerts. Operators designated receive notification messages when an event raising an alert occurs. When an alert is raised, notification can be sent using e-mail, network net-send message, or pager. The AddNotification method allows specification of one or more notification mechanisms when operators are assigned notification for an alert.

The RemoveNotification method removes all operator notification mechanisms for an alert. Use the UpdateNotification method to alter the notification mechanism without dropping the association between an alert and an operator.

This namespace, class, or member is supported only in version 2.0 of the Microsoft .NET Framework.
