The SQL Server Object Type tab allows you to specify the type of SQL Server object that should be monitored by this alert rule. You can generate alerts for objects on currently audited databases and SQL Server instances.
Select the object that triggers this alert
Allows you to specify the SQL Server object type that should trigger this alert. When the Collection Server processes an audited event associated with the specified object type, the alert rule is run to see whether the identified event matches the other alert rule criteria.
By default, the alert rule applies your alert criteria against events on any audited SQL Server instance.
You can specify one or more objects:
|Type of Object||You can specify …|
|SQL Server instance|
For example, you can specify the following objects:
- Any database whose name contains the word test on the LABSERVER instance
- The model database on any audited instance
- The Salary table in the HR01 database hosted by the Chicago instance
Edit rule details
Allows you specify the word or phrase the alert rule should use to identify events associated with the object you want to alert on.
The rule details pane also allows you to change your specified alert rule criteria at any time as you create your new alert rule. As you specify criteria using the New Event Alert Rule wizard, the rule details grows to include these additional settings. To edit previously set criteria, click the corresponding setting.
