Audilbe/auido alerts in SIM

Is there a way to generate audible/audio alerts in SIM 5.1? i.e. we want a noise when a critical event comes in.

The best way is do on EVENT thta sends on email and you creat a rules thta when you get en email from you're server with critical in the body of the message send a sound or execute a script that you can create a sound alert.

I'm worried this method would cause a delay in reporting a critical alert as we'd have to wait for the email to be sent by SIM and then recieved in the inbox. Can a Custom Tool job be created to just play a sound?

I suppose you could use a custom command to send a wav or similar file to a device. Maybe place it in a directory of a device that scans the directory and plays a file if it finds one.

You'd need to work in the reverse direction for the solution though. e.g. figure out what device would make a noise and under what circumstances and then figure out how a script could do that.

Your custom command script can do whatever your scripting language of choice can do.
