About Alerts

Alerts feature enables the user to be notified of the occurrence of specific event ID(s) in security event log of a domain controller, through e-mail. This feature is powered by a multitasking listener service called ADCT Listener Service.


  • ADCT Listener Service runs in background even after the ADChangeTracker application is closed.
  • Multiple domain controllers can be subscribed for multiple event IDs.
  • E-mail alert notification can be limited to a threshold limit. i.e. ( Say, send an email when the event ID 'x' occurs for 'y' times)
  • Provision to add, edit, delete and view properties of a specific event ID information.
  • Attempts to reconnect for every one minute if a DC is not reachable.
