Feature Updates

Actionable Alert Rule Builder Updates

  • Improved the Rule Builder UI to make it clearer to users to scroll down to complete all fields necessary for creating a rule.
  • If only one System for an Inspector exists, we will populate that System into the System field for the user.
  • Within the Actionable Alerts Rule Builder, a user can now select multiple Metrics when selecting Metrics for the Body and Alert Comments sections. The name of the Metric will prepopulate in the Body and the Alert Comment.
  • Within the Rule Builder, the Inspector dropdown options will be grayed out if Metrics do not exist for an Inspector.

View JMES Path Query for Metrics Used in Actionable Alert Rules

Using the Conditions column in the Actionable Alerts page, users can click into the rule's condition(s) to preview the JMES Path query of the Metric used in the Actionable Alert rule.

Review Rules Associated to Metrics

Users can click into the count displayed in the Related Rules column on the Admin > Metrics screen to view the list of rules associated with the Metric.

Created On Column Added for Actionable Alerts

A “Created On” column was added to the Open Alerts Dashboard screen and the Single Environment Dashboard to let users know when a specific Alert was created.
