Inactive endpoints are delivery channels that have been reserved for later use but aren't available. The Inactive list is a staging area, where you can adjust the configuration of a new endpoint without impacting the live production lists.
Edit an endpoint by clicking on its name in the list. Each endpoint will have its own settings and parameters according to its needs.
When a new endpoint is added to your Omnilert system, it can be added as "Inactive" so that it may be configured before putting it into live service.
Endpoint "Service Status" checks
Each endpoint in your list will show its configuration status on the right-hand side. Each time the page loads (also when the Send Message page is loaded), Omnilert will check each service to ensure that it's configured and available.
A solid green disc circle icon indicates that the endpoint appears to be correctly configured and available. A hollow red circle icon indicates that Omnilert has detected a problem with that endpoint. (Tip: Hover your mouse over the circle for more info about any red circled endpoints.)
Note: For external 3rd-party services, such as Alertus, Visix, CAP Post, and Webhooks, Omnilert will contact the 3rd-Party server and/or post a test post as part of this service status check process each time the page loads. If the server is unavailable or unreachable, you'll see a red circle.
Activating an Endpoint
Once ready, simply select the desired from the list and then choose Activate from the menu at the top of the list.
Once configured and activated, an endpoint can be used in outgoing Omnilert messages.
