Configuring Additional Alert Options

  • Dark

You can configure how often and when a notification is sent after an event is triggered. For example, you can limit the amount of notification sent to one when a data alert is triggered. This is useful if you build your ElastiCubes frequently, but do not need multiple notifications.

To configure additional options:

  1. When adding or editing a widget to Pulse, in the Advanced Options window, select >Additional Options .


  2. Select any of the following options:

    For data alerts:

    • Select Notify only once after a condition is met to limit how many notifications are sent after an event occurs.
    • Select Notify when a condition is no longer met to notify users after the event is no longer triggered.

    For build alerts:

    • Select Notify once when there is a status change to notify users only once when the latest build status is different than the previous build status.

The difference between selecting "Notify only once after a condition is met" and leaving it clear is that every time the alert is reviewed against the data, the condition is evaluated. If the condition is met, an alert is triggered and you will receive the notification. The checkbox determines what happens next after the first time the condition is met.
