How to create operator in SQL?

Hi all,

I hope everyone is great. As discussed in last post, lets have a look on how to add operators in SQL.

Use of Operator -

The operator is used in SQL Management Plans and Jobs to send mail in case of Success or Failure of Jobs.
We will discuss how to create jobs and SQL Maintenance Plans in a separate post.

As of now let's stick to agenda and discuss how to create the operator.

Open SQL Server.
Open SQL Server Agent and in Operator folder, Right Click and select New Operator.

Enter Name and Email Address under General Tab.
For Multiple Email addresses use ; as email separator.

There are also other option available like Net Send and pager email.

The Net Send option can also be configured if you want to send a confirmation message on screen.

The Pager email is also same as first option but with this option you can scheduled the week day and time when you want to receive the mail.

After entering email Ids click OK and operator is created.

In the next post we will see how to create a job / maintenance plan and use Of operator in same.
