SCOM WebConsole doesn't show Informational Alerts

17-11-2009 Update:
This is a repost of the blog posting which was originally posted on the 14th of February 2009. It contained some minor issues which have been corrected. I have tested it and it works with OpsMgr SP1 and R2 as well, also the architecture (x86/x64) makes no difference.

The Web Console shows only Critical and Warning Alerts. This behavior is by default. Informational Alerts aren't shown.

When one wants to see the Informational Alerts as well, one has add an entry to the web.config file (location: ~:\Program Files\System Center Operations Manager 2007\Web Console)

Add this line to the <configuration> <appSettings> node:

<add key="AlertSeverity" value="2" />
see screen dump:

The WebConsole will show Informational Alerts as well from now:

Thank you Marnix! I've been digging all over the web trying to find how to changes this.

Hi Anonymous.

You're welcome. Many customers of mine want to see Informational Alerts as well in their WebConsoles. Somewhere I found this solution. Normally I always refer to the source but somehow this one slipped through.

Best regards,
