Change the default email template for DPA alert notifications

If an alert definition does not assign a specific email template to use for alert notifications, the default email template is used.

Initially, the DPA System Template is the default template. You can create a custom template and designate it as the default.

  1. From the DPA menu in the upper-right corner, click Alerts.
  2. In the upper-right corner, click Manage alerts.
  3. Click the Email Templates tab.

    "Default" next to the template name identifies the default template.

  4. Locate the template you want to designate as the default, and click Make default. Then click Yes at the confirmation prompt.

    "Default" appears next to the template's name, and the number of Applied Alerts is updated. All alert definitions with "Use Default" in the Email Template field now use this template for email notifications.

    The Delete button is no longer displayed for the new default template, because you cannot delete a template while it is designated as the default.
