Message Center overview

By default, the Message Center is minimized to a message tray at the bottom left of the console. The message tray notifies you of how many messages were received, during which time-period they were received, and the highest severity of all the messages (indicated by a color-coded callout icon). It is always global in scope, showing information for all servers and tasks.

Note:

The Message Center will not show log messages reported by Compose servers and tasks. However, messages reported by Enterprise Manager such as when monitoring has started /stopped for a Compose server or when a server has been deleted, will appear.

In the message tray, the message severity icon indicates the highest severity of the received messages. For example, if 11 messages were received but only one of them was an error message, the severity icon is red. Other callout colors are orange for warning messages and blue for informational messages.

The following types of messages can be displayed: Info, Notification, Warning and Error. The actual message types that Qlik Enterprise Manager displays as well as the display time period depend on your Message Center preferences.

Each message type has its own icon, as shown below:
