Alert actions, which are similar to Oracle Alerts, can launch various processes as well as send electronic mail notifications to users. See: Defining Collection Element Alert Actions and Defining Collection Plan Element Alert Actions.
Quality alert actions include:
- Execute an operating system script
- Launch a concurrent request
- Send an electronic mail notification
There is only one user-defined action, the Assign a Value action. This action assigns a value to a collection plan element based upon a user-defined formula or a user-defined SQL script. The Assign a Value action can only be defined for collection plan elements. See: Defining Actions that Assign a Value: User-Defined Formulas.
