In the "All Active Alerts" page, a user may delete a triggered instance of an alert by selecting an alert and clicking the "CLEAR TRIGGERED INSTANCE OF ALERT" link at the top of the grid. When an alert is cleared this way, it's deleted from the database but the action is not logged. Solarwinds already logs instances of alerts being triggered and reset. For business auditing purposes, Solarwinds should also log when an alert instance is manually cleared/deleted. As an additional benefit, adding this audit event would allow users to trigger alert actions when an alert is manually cleared (for instance, if someone clears an alert instance on an application, I could email the app owner alerting them of the fact).
