Can someone, please explain to me what expires does when setting up an alert. I can not find an explanation in the manuals, I search.

Hi @auzark 

Expries meaning , after an alert triggers with output , how long you can able to access that results, before it expries, 

in your example ,alert runs at 15 th minutes of every hour means if alert trigger at 11:15  AM  with output of  15 records, the results will be avalible until 03:15 PM , after that you no loner has access to results.

and alerts runs at 12:15 PM will be active till 04:15 PM so on...

you can able to access triggered resluts from
