On-Check Failure Automated Task

From Mac Agent 2.1.0 we have included the ability to run a Automated Tasks when a Check fails to, for example automatically dealing with cause of the failure, and have incorporated the option to assign an On-Check Failure Automated Task when adding or editing a Check in the Checks tab for the Dashboard. Further information on this process is available in the section: Link Check to On-Check Failure Automated Task.

The selected Automated Task only runs when a passing Check fails and creates an entry in the Outages tab. The Automated Task does not continually run when a Check is in the failed state, the Check must first pass, then fail again before the Automated Task is triggered.
