|Setting up alerts and messages|
If you use role-based administration, you must have the System configuration right to perform this task. For more information, see Managing roles and sub-estates.
Enterprise Console displays alerts raised by the update manager in the Alerts column in the Update managers view. If you subscribed to a fixed version of software, an alert will be displayed when that version is nearing retirement or is retired. An alert will also be displayed if your product license has changed.
If you are subscribed to a fixed version of software and have chosen to Automatically upgrade fixed version software when it is no longer supported by Sophos, your subscription will be upgraded automatically.
If you have chosen not to be upgraded automatically, you will be instructed to change your subscription.
You can also set up email alerts to be sent to your chosen recipients when the product version you are subscribed to is nearing retirement or is retired.
This alert is sent if the product you are subscribed to has been retired, or your license has changed and the new license does not include that product.
