        Excellent, though when using it, i found that if I added an AD group (email in AD populated) to the team, the AD team did not get a notification. We need to be able to read the AD team email field or provide an email address for the team.

        Thanks,

        Hi Chris,

        In Octopus 3.5, we released Subscriptions which allow you to send email or webhook notifications when audited events happen within Octopus. The relevant event for a failed health check is 'Machine found to be unhealthy'. You can create your Subscriptions in the Configuration > Audit > Subscriptions > [SubscriptionName] page in your Web Portal, and from there customize which events you'd like to be subscribed to within the 'Event Filter' section.

        You can read more about them in our documentation: https://octopus.com/docs/administration/subscriptions
        And in our blog: https://octopus.com/blog/subscriptions

        Kind regards
