Implicit Action Policy

With the Implicit Action policy, WhatsUp Gold automatically assigns actions to all devices in your database. There is no way to opt out of the Implicit Action policy, so any action in that policy will be used by all devices. The Implicit Action Policy is not used for active monitors, just devices.

The Implicit Action policy is configured and can be edited through the Action Policies dialog. If at any time during the normal operation of WhatsUp Gold you notice that actions are firing and you cannot find the action associated to the down device or monitor, remember to check the Implicit Action Policy too.

Note: In Previous versions of WhatsUp Gold, the Web Alarm Action was included in the Implicit Action Policy. This is no longer true in Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold v11. For more information on the Web Alarm Action, see About Web Alarms.
