When any event happens or there is a need to send a notification alert, Alibaba Cloud Monitor (Cloud Monitor) can trigger an email to sendQuick Cloud (sendQuick). sendQuick will then convert the email message to alerts and send to mobile phone based on the policy (filter) rules assigned. The email messages are sent from Cloud Monitor to sendQuick for processing.

In Cloud Monitor, the first configuration is to configure the Alert Contacts, creating the recipient list to receive the notifications. Since sendQuick is used to manage the recipients on the different channels, you just need to configure one (1) email in Alert Contacts. This is explained below.

3.1  Configure Email Alert Contact for sendQuick in Cloud Monitor

On the main page of Cloud Monitor, select Alerts and Alert Contacts. These are shown in the Figures below.

Alert Contacts

Once selected, select Create Alert Contact, provide a Name, insert the Email Address (from sendQuick), verify and select OK. This will create the new contact and an email will be sent to the recipient (in this case sendQuick Cloud) for verification.

Do note that Cloud Monitor requires the email to be verified to be confirmed. There is an Inbox in Email Filter Rules in sendQuick Cloud that capture all the emails. The Email from Alibaba will be logged in this Inbox (see below).

Select the Inbox (after Alibaba has sent the Email), click on the Alibaba email message, Click on the Confirm Email link and the confirmation/verified page will confirm the process.

The Alibaba Email is ready to use as seen below.

Once the Alert Contacts is created, you are ready to configure the Alert Rules.
