    Daily Custom Alert - When will it run?


      I made a custom alert with the interval set to once per day, but I don't see anywhere I can specify as to WHEN once a day it's going to run?

      I found online documentation and a video but the UI doesn't look like anything I'm seeing so I'm wondering if the video is out of date.

          This is currently a feature request for the DPA product. However, there is a way to "schedule" the alert to run at a specific time of day through the backend. To do this, you can follow these steps:


          Step 1: Find the alert id (first column below) using this query against the repository database. This query will return a row for every monitored instance the alert is tied to and the alertid value should be the same for all rows.

          SELECT a.id as alertid, a.alertname, db.lastrun

          FROM ignite.con_alert a

          JOIN ignite.con_alert_db db ON db.alertid = a.id

          WHERE a.alertname = '<name of your alert>';


          Step 2: Update the lastrun value for the alert on each monitored instance. The example below tricks the alert engine into thinking the alert last ran at 1 am this morning so that it will run again at 1 am tomorrow.

          UPDATE ignite.con_alert_db

          SET lastrun = '08/29/2018 01:00'

          WHERE alertid = <alertid>;
