ScoutDNS allows administrators to designate who can receive notifications and select what type of notifications are sent to where. This is done through the use of Notification Profiles. A notification profile contains both the email address to send alerts to, as well as the settings for what specific alerts are sent to that email address.
Create Notification Profile
Simply click "New" at the top right within the Configure Notifications page. Next input the email address that these notifications will be sent to. This address can be any email address and does not have to be a user account. A description can be entered to provide context for administrators if desired.
Now, you must select what notifications will be sent. Notifications are separated by type: System and Block Page.
Dynamic DNS IP Change: Sends notification when a DNS IP Change has been detected on a network using a Dynamic DNS Name and the new IP was successfully obtained.
Dynamic DNS IP Update Failure: Sends notification when a DNS IP change has been detected on a network using a Dynamic DNS Name but failed to obtain a new IP
Unblock Page Request: Send requests from end users who are requesting a page be unblocked
More notification types are being added.
