The Events page shows the events which occurred in the cloud and which users were notified. To view the list of events go to your Control Panel > Admin Events menu. The page that loads shows the list of events which have occurred in the system with their details:

  • Date - the time and date when the event occurred
  • Event Type - the type of the event
  • Data -  the text of the notification that was sent about the event 

OnApp currently offers two event types: system and custom. To view the list of system event types, that cannot be edited or deleted, go to your Control Panel > AdminEvent Types System Event Types tab. The page that loads shows the list of system event types registered in system with their details:

  • ID - the ID of the event
  • Event type - the type of the event

If required you can add a custom event type which can later be selected when setting up a subscription.
