Alerting

Alerts not showing up

Hi,

I have a search running once an hour, which is configured to raise an alert and email me if events>0. Alert expiration is set to 24 hours. I get the emails, but the alerts do not show up in the "Alerts" link. Also, under "Manager > Searches & reports", the number of alerts stays at 0.

Why is that?

IIRC, the behavior you describe is "tracking", on the configuration page for the search that drives the alert. Tracking is a tick box that keeps track in the Manager UI. Otherwise, you just get the emails.

Can you elaborate on enabling the tracking feature on alerts? I have setup an email alert and I am getting the emails but I cannot see the alert to modify it.
