Alert lifecycle configuration Event Management provides various modules, templates, and properties for configuring alerts and the actions that execute for these alerts. Populate alert fields from a task template and custom scriptWhen configuring or modifying an alert rule, you can assign a task template to add required information. Custom script can be used to dynamically assign alert fields to the task. When required, both task templates and custom script can be used.Configure an overwrite alert templateAn overwrite alert template modifies alert field values before inserting the alert in the Alert [em_alert] table. For reference purposes, the original information is always available in the event.Configure the alert active intervalThe active interval property determines how Event Management handles a new event that is similar to events that appear on an existing alert. Based on the active interval, event, and existing alert information, the event information is added to either the existing alert or a new alert. Configure alert flappingYou can set flapping properties to determine when an alert enters and exits the flapping state. Configure automatic actions for alerts and incidentsEvent Management can perform additional actions after alerts or incidents close, reopen, or age.
