  2. Determine the name of the alert you want to delete.
    In this example, we will delete "Clone of Application performance of an application (front-end)".
  3. Issue a DELETE https://address/cxf/api/v1/config/alerts/definitions/Clone of Application performance of an application (front-end) request to delete the request.
    You should see a 200 status code for a successful deletion.
