The ITAS Alerts service enables administrators to create alerts that are assigned to specific users that trigger a notification when specific parameters have changed within the database. For example, users can be alerted when the Port Of Destination is changed on an existing contract by another user, or an alteration to a Port of Destination or a Bill of Lading Date can be brought to the attention of back office staff whose responsibility it is to ensure compliance with strict regulations and deadlines.
ITAS users can access the details of the Alerts assigned to them and add filters that narrow the parameters required to trigger an alert; such as a data change to an order for a specific Trading Entity, Counterparty or Commodity. The details include the delivery method which is also controlled for each individual alert, enabling notifications to be sent to non-ITAS and externals users.
Alerts fall into two categories; a Data Change or an Operational Alert.
|Component Code and Description||

|NWE||Access to ITAS Events Engine and API||✓||⚙|
|NWE||API Integration of ITAS Notifications to MS Teams using Adaptors||✓||⚙|
These are self-service and can be created by any nominated administrator then assigned to individual users. They involve identifying a single or multiple data point and requesting a notification when a data change is detected.
Create new alerts that are triggered by a change to ITAS data or new data being added
Edit an existing alert
Assign alerts to External Users
These are linked to ITAS processes, typically those available through ITAS Applications. These alerts do not necessarily involve any data change and provide the ability to raise Events Notifications to interested subscribers.
Add Existing ITAS Users to an alert category
Add Trading Entities
Assign filters to each of the Trading Entities
Typically, alerts will be presented on the desktop as a screen pop-up and viewed in the Alerts panel that is accessed from the primary navigation, but they can also be emailed to the user. The Data Portal expands the methods of delivery to include communication platforms such as Microsoft Teams and SMS along with bespoke delivery methods that can be added using Enterprise Integration in the future.
