How to manage actions

The ADMIN > Actions page provides tools for for creating and managing triggers, destinations, and rules. In addition, you can review the history of actions for any time range in your data retention period. Users with the Manager role can view the page and create and manage actions. The action service of the Zenoss API includes resources for creating and managing triggers, destinations, and rules, as well.

Manage triggers, destinations, and rules

Each of the tabs on the ADMIN > Actions page displays a table. You can add, edit, and delete entries on the RULES, TRIGGERS, and DESTINATIONS tabs.

  • To view the specifications of an entry, select the eye icon in the Actions column.

  • To clone, edit, or delete an entry, click the menu control (the vertical ellipsis () in the Actions column) and then select an option.

  • To filter entries, enter a search term at the top of a column.

  • To configure the rows per page and navigate the pages, use the controls at the bottom-right side of the page.

View action service history

The HISTORY tab on the ADMIN > Actions page displays the activity log of the action service in a table.

The default time range is the past 24 hours, but you can change it to any range within your data retention period.

The history table works just like the tables on the other tabs:

  • To view the details of an entry, select the eye icon in the Actions column.
  • To filter entries, enter a search term at the top of a column.
  • To configure the rows per page and navigate the pages, use the controls at the bottom-right side of the page.

Entries cannot be deleted; the history table is read-only.
