Email alert to local security group

Hi,

I want to send an email-alert in case a certain condition is met in the application. This works if I specify single email-addresses, but can I also send an alert to local security groups (thus not having to specify single users)?

 

Thanks,

Nigel

Nigel, security group would NOT work as far as I know, you would have to use a Distribution Group in this case in order for things to work I believe.  

Depending upon where you are trying to do things could have an impact as well, I would also check the Help to confirm there too.  The only two things of which I can think you are trying to do is the Alert Email in the QMC:

https://help.qlik.com/en-US/qlikview/April2019/Subsystems/QMC/Content/QV_QMC/QMC_System_Setup_Distri...

The other one would be the Alerts within a QVW app:

https://help.qlik.com/en-US/qlikview/April2019/Subsystems/Client/Content/QV_QlikView/Alerts.htm

I see nothing in either that say you cannot use groups, but again, you need to use a Distribution Group, not a Security Group, as the Security Group is not going to resolve via the Email Server, at least I would not expect it to do so from what I know.
