Provide a name and description for the Alert Configuration.

Step 2: Define Configuration

The table given below lists the parameters for which alerts can be configured:

Parameter Description

Password Expiration

The number of days before which the user has to be informed about the password expiration. The default value is 14 days.

Disk Space
