In this post I will short show you how to setup a notification only for health service heartbeat failure. I have seen a number of questions in the groups about this. If you haven´t configure notification channels yet, you can follow my other guide about that, here.

  1. Start the console, click Administration, expand notifications and right-click subscriptions, choose to create a new notification subscription
  2. Create Notification Subscription Wizard – General: Input a name and add recipients, click Next
  3. Create Notification Subscription Wizard – User Role Filter: Click Next
  4. Create Notification Subscription Wizard – Groups: Leave default settings, all groups. We want notification from all machines, click Next
  5. Create Notification Subscription Wizard – Classes: Choose only “Health Service Watcher”, click Next
  6. Create Notification Subscription Wizard – Alert Criteria: Choose, Only Errors, with high priority, both new and closed resolution state and all category. Click Next
  7. Create Notification Subscription Wizard – Alert Aging: Leave default setting, do not… , click Next
  8. Create Notification Subscription Wizard – Formats: Coose to use the default e-mail format, click Finish

If you want to narrow down category too, you can choose only “StateCollection” as category.
