26.4 Setting Pop-Up Message Preferences

The Pop-Up Message Preferences page allows you to select the messages from different sub-components, that you would like to display in real-time to the user on any page in the Enterprise Manager Cloud Console.

Notification messages like target status change, and command-line broadcast messages from the Super Administrators can be displayed by making appropriate setting changes to this page. By default, the pop-up messages are set to show status.

If you choose to retain the show status for these pop-up messages, you can set the following preferences:

  • Show target status change messages: This option displays a message every time there is a change in the target status. For example, if your target goes down or comes up, you will see a notification on the page. By default, the messages lasts for 15 seconds. If you deselect this option, the messages will not be displayed on the target page.

  • Show messages sent by super administrator using EMCLI messages: This option enables you to see all the messages sent by the super administrator. By default, the messages appear on all the screens in the Enterprise Manager Cloud Control Console. If you deselect this option, the messages will not be displayed on the screens.

    For example, if you run the following command, a pop-up with the custom message appears on every screen of the Enterprise Manager Cloud Control Console.

    emcli send_popup_message -messageType="INFO" -toOption="ALL" -message="EM will be taken down in an hour for an emergency patch"

    The messages are usually transient and last for a stipulated amount of time on a particular page. However, for command line messages, there is an added flexibility in terms of allowing the message to stay on the page until the user chooses to close it.

The following types of messages are supported from this page: Confirmation, information, warning, error, and fatal. By default, the length that a message is displayed for is set to 15 seconds. You can change this value, if required.
