Monitoring for UDM Pro is a new chargeable add on module for UDM Pro. Within UDM Pro you can see in the devices screen when the phone last checked in but that depend on the activity on the phone and the frequency of polling for that device. This is not a very accurate way of identifying availability nor does it indicate if the device has signed out. There is no alert sent to say when the device hasn’t been seen either.
This is where Monitoring for UDM Pro comes in. By selecting a UDM Pro Tag to monitor and setting a device not seen alert you can receive an email when the device fails to be found on the network.
Setup of Monitoring
There are only two steps to setup montoring. First you need to define a an email server to relay the email messages and then you setup a Monitor.
Email Server Configuration
Select the settings menu from the top right of your UDM Pro screen. Then scroll down to Email Server Configuration.
The fields on this screen to complete are:
|Mail Server (SMTP)||The FQDN of your mail server to be used to relay the messages||Yes|
|Mail Server Port Number|
The port required to send SMTP emails.
How long the UDM Server will wait without receiving a response before timing out.
Default 60 seconds
|Host Server Certificate|
The Base64 encoded server certificate. This is only needed if the host server is using a self-signed certificate or one signed by an unrecognised CA.
Most likely for on-premise installations.
|Ignore SSL Hostname Mismatch||For secure connections ignore problems where the hostname and certificate do not match. Most likely for on-premise installations.||No|
|SSL||If the server requires SSL/TLS connections select the type. If you turn this on the port number will normally be different to port 25.||No|
|From Address||The email address to use in the from field of the email|
"From Address" or
|Username||Logon username for servers that require authentication|
|Password||Logon passwordfor servers that require authentication|
Once you have completed the details and you have applied them, press the SEND TEST EMAIL button. You will be prompted for a To Address enter your email address you want to receive the test from.
You will either receive a "Successfully sent the test email" or an error with the debug information. If you receive an error please review the debug information to see if you can determine the problem with your configuratrion. If you cannot work out the problem please contact email@example.com with the debug information for assistance.
Having completed the setup of the mail server you can move on to the setup of the monitor. If you do not have an email sever that you can use to relay or to logon to and send the emails please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for other options.
