AirWave - Creating a device down trigger for access points

Can anyone provide some guidance on how to setup a trigger in AirWave?

 

This would be for when an IAP goes down. I'd like to have it send an email once an hour until the IAP is back online.


I've tried the "Help" option on the Trigger page but it does not make sense and is not detailed enough on how to accomplish the above.


Thanks in advance

You might need two triggers here.  One for the AP going down initially, and then another for every hour that it is down.

 

Here is what you need for every hour.

Thanks for the reply.

 

So would I definately need two triggers for this to work?

yes looks like it is the case.
There is no other way currently.

supress until acknowledged is the key here, if set to know then it will continue to send emails if the device is down, once it comes up you either need to acknowledge the alert or use the auto-acknowledge option.

What does these options mean?

 

 “Send Alerts when Upstream Device is Down”  

“Send Alerts for Thin APs when Controller is Down”

 

If I setup the Trigger as per your screenshot, but I do not set the 60 minutes condition and I do not select the "supress until acknowledged" option, how often would an email be sent for an IAP that is down?

At the next polling period it would send an email
