Manage notification subscribers πŸ”—

When a detector triggers an alert in Observability Cloud, a notification is sent to the recipients you defined. Each recipient is a subscriber to the detector that triggers the alert.

You can manage the subscribers for all notifications sent by your detectors at any time, so that new alerts and their status are sent to the right people, channels, and systems in your organization.

To manage the notification recipients of existing detectors:


If you’re not receiving notifications as expected, see if any detector rules have been deactivated (see Manage alert rules). Also check the Muting Rules tab to make sure notifications haven’t been temporarily suspended.

To manage the subscribers to a specific detector:

  1. Go to Alerts and select the Detectors tab.

  2. Select the more icon (β‹―) of the detector you want to edit.

  3. In the actions menu, select Manage Subscriptions.

  4. In the dialog box, select Add Recipient.


Recipients can be added separately for each rule.
