Modifying alerts

If you have the appropriate user permissions, you can modify alerts on query-based or Look-linked tiles on user-defined dashboards or LookML dashboards that use the new or legacy dashboards.

To edit, duplicate, or delete an alert, click the alert icon on the alert’s tile and then click the three-dot menu to the right of the alert listed in the alert view window. Modifying your alert settings also changes those settings for users who follow your alerts.

You cannot duplicate another user’s Slack alert delivery settings if either of these conditions is true:

Attempting to duplicate an alert in either of these cases will result in this displayed message:

This alert delivers notifications to a destination that is not available to you. Click Clear to reset to default.

Admins can edit, duplicate, delete, or pause any alert, even private alerts that were created by other users.

Deleting an alert’s dashboard or dashboard tile

If a user deletes the dashboard or dashboard tile that the alert is on, that alert will be disabled: Any followers or recipients will no longer receive notifications when the alert conditions are met.

The alert owner will see immediately that the name of the dashboard has been deleted for the alert on the Manage Alerts user page. After the next time the alert query runs, the alert status will show as Disabled.

Admins will see immediately that the name of the dashboard has been replaced with a - for the alert on the Alert History page of the Admin panel and that it has been deleted for the alert on the Alerts page of the Admin panel. After the next time the alert query runs, the alert will be removed from the Alert History page of the Admin panel. On the Alerts admin page, the status shows as Paused with a tooltip message that indicates that the dashboard or dashboard element (tile) has been deleted.
