Set an Alert#
When events match your conditions, your rule sends an alert to the destination you configure. The image below shows an example email alert.
Alert content includes the triggering event fact(s) and optional additional facts. The image below shows the alert editor.
Here you’ll set the alert destination and any additional facts to include in alert content.
Configure an Alert#
Select the type of alert destination you want. The alert types include these:
Webhook: Delivers a JSON object payload to a webhook.
Google Cloud Function: Delivers a JSON object payload to a Google Cloud Function.
Dataset: Writes alert content to a dataset (creates it if it doesn’t already exist). Note, all columns except
Email: Delivers a data table with a set of values.
SMS: Sends a single-sentence update via text message.
Mattermost: Delivers a data table with a set of values.
Slack BETA: Delivers a data table with a set of values.
After selecting an alert destination type, fill in the alert detail fields below it.
Make sure to set the wait time between alerts. The wait time specifies the maximum alert frequency.
Include Additional Facts#
You can enrich your alert content with additional facts–you can select them similarly to the way you selected condition facts.
When you’re done setting your alert, advance to the next page to name, review, and launch your rule.
Review and Launch Your Rule demonstrates how to do just that.
