To set up alerts for Troubleshooting, you must be a full administrator, and have a Webex site that's on version 40.4.0 or higher. Read-only administrators and support administrators can only view rules created by other administrators.


Alerts only trigger for participants who attend meetings through the Webex Meetings and Webex app. The minimum app versions that participants must use for alerts to trigger are:

  • Webex Meetings desktop app version 39.6.5 or higher

  • Webex Meetings mobile app for Android and iOS version 39.11 or higher

  • Webex desktop app version 3.0.12427.0 or higher

  • Webex Mobile Android app version 4.1.6 or higher

  • Webex Mobile iOS app version 4.3 or higher


Alerts don't trigger for audio-only meetings, Webex Events, and Webex Training sessions.

Live Meeting Monitoring

Use this alert to find out when participants are experiencing network quality issues during meetings that are in progress. You can set the alert to trigger when a participant reaches any of the network quality thresholds within an accumulated or consecutive duration. If a participant reaches one of the thresholds during a meeting, then the recipients of the alert get an email with a direct link to the meeting details in Troubleshooting so they can easily help out.


This alert sends out one email for each meeting that a participant reaches the threshold in.

Historical Meeting Quality Trend

Use this alert to find out when a percentage of participants in specific Webex sites and locations reach the network quality thresholds that are set automatically based on the past performance of meetings within the last seven days. The alert reviews all the meetings at the end of each day, and if the receiving jitter, packet loss, or latency for audio or video is worse than the previous dates, then a notification is sent out. These details can help you determine if there are network connection problems in your organization, or if the problem is limited to a specific Webex site or location. A report is also available to download that shows the meeting quality details for participants.

Historical Meeting Quality Monitoring

Similar to the history meeting quality trend alert, you can use this alert to set your own thresholds on when to receive an alert when a percentage of participants in a Webex site and specific locations reach any of the network quality thresholds. A report is also available to download that shows the meeting quality details for participants.

You can enable up to 10 live meeting monitoring alerts per organization. Each alert can monitor up to either 30 user email addresses or 30 devices.
