How to manage my alerts?

You can manage your alerts in two ways:

  • Remove it and make it disappear from the history tab
  • Make it expire and remove it from the dashboard, but keeping it in the history, in case you don't need the alert anymore, for example if you solved the issue in a shorter time than the expiration one.

Note: you cannot edit an alert, instead you can remove it/expire it and create a new one
