The Implicit Action policy automatically assigns actions to all devices in your database. You cannot opt out of the Implicit Action policy.
Note: The Implicit Action Policy only assigns actions to devices. You must create separate action policies for device monitors.
If at any time during the normal operation of WhatsUp Gold you notice that actions are firing and you cannot find the action associated to the down device or monitor, remember to check the Implicit Action Policy.
Note: In previous versions of WhatsUp Gold, the Web Alarm action was included in the Implicit Action Policy. This is no longer true in Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold v14.4. For more information on the Web Alarm action, see About Web Alarms.
