The On-Call Roster lets you create user groups to be notified when an alarm occurs. Each group includes a list of users in a specific order. Alarm pipeline's notification blocks must choose an on-call roster which identifies the users to notify for that notification block. Depending on the alarm notification profile used, the users can be notified one at a time (sequential), or all at once (parallel). It is important to remember that when an on-call roster is used for alarm notification, only those users on the roster whose schedulesare active will be notified.
