Tableau Server Notifications

Tableau Server on Windows now includes Tableau Services Manager (TSM), which replaces the Configuration Utility and the command line tool. If you need help for an earlier version of Tableau Server, see the Tableau Help page.

You can setup up email notifications when server is running out of disk space and for when server processes stop or start. These conditions often mean that there is an immediate problem.

To send notifications, Tableau Server must be able to connect to a mail server, also known as a Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) server. An SMTP server is a service that you can send outbound email messages to (It doesn't handle incoming email). Before you configure notifications, you must first configure Tableau Server to communicate with your SMTP mail server. For more information, see Configure SMTP Setup.

Once you have configured your SMTP mail server, you can setup notifications for monitoring server health events. For more information, see Configure Server Event Notification.
