Triggered alerts

Review all recently triggered alerts on the Triggered Alerts page.

For information on configuring the "Add to Triggered Alerts" action, see Monitor triggered alerts.

Triggered alert listing

Alerts appear on the Triggered Alerts page under the following conditions.

  • The "Add to Triggered Alerts" action is enabled for the alert.
  • The alert triggered recently.
  • The alert retention time is not complete.
  • The triggered alert listing has not been deleted.

On the Triggered Alerts page, details appear in the following categories.

Category Description
Time Trigger date and time.
Fired alerts Triggered alert name(s).
App Alert app context.
Type Alert type.
Severity Assigned alert severity level. Severity levels can help you sort or filter alerts on this page.
Mode Alert triggering configuration mode. "Per-result" means that the alert triggered because of a single event. "Digest" means that the alert triggered because of a group of events.

Records of triggered alerts are available for twenty-four hours by default. You can configure this expiration time on a per-alert basis. For example, you can arrange to have the triggered alert records for an alert have a lifespan of seven days instead of twenty-four hours. See Update triggered alert lifespans for information on changing the lifespan of the alert records for an individual alert.
