    Sending Alerts from Server

    sumit singla

      Hi Everyone,

       

      I have data like names and some measure values. Now I need to send the alerts from the server if measure value exceeds the threshold values to respective user.

       

      How can I automate the alerts so if any measure value exceeds the threshold value for any user an email  alert should be sent to that user?

       

      Any help would be appreciated.

       

      Thanks and Regards,

      Sumit Singla

          Hi Sumit Singla ,

           

          You can do it using tabcmd or creating alerts on server  .

           

           

          Here instead of sending mails after tableau extract you will be sending mail after a threshold breach .

            VizAlerts allows dynamic recipients. It is a free and open-source (but not Tableau-supported) tool designed to work with Tableau Server for extremely flexible, conditional, email / SMS bursting. It will allow you to scale up to thousands of users, if you want, with no manual work. Building this as an Alert or a Conditional Subscription on Tableau Server would work, but only with manual work for each subscriber, as Nikher just mentioned. It would not scale to many.

              Hi Matt,

               

              Thanks for the responding. I have also read about viz alerts and it might be possible to send the alerts through vizalerts too.

              Can you please help me understand vizalert tool and how to use it ?

              What kind of access are required on server for this tool? To setup the alert do I need to set up it from server or is it possible on tableau desktop ?

               

              Any kind of help is appreciated.

               

              Thanks and Regards,

                Hi Nikher,

                 

                Thanks for the information provided.

                 

                I have checked but am not able to find the command through which we can send the alerts from tableau server.

                 

                Could you please help me sharing the commands that need to execute or any referenced URL would help?

                 

                Thanks,
