Sample alerts

When you configure alert notifications for a Backbone test, send sample alerts to the destinations to make sure the notifications will be received.

Sample alerts can only be sent for tests that have active alerts. To send a sample alert notification:

  1. Select Menu icon > Alerts to open the Alerts page.
    The Alert Configuration tab is displayed by default. It lists all tests that have alerts configured.
  2. Find the test for you which you want to send sample alerts, by scrolling the list or by using the search field above the table.
  3. Click the Action cell for the test, then click Action > Send sample alerts.
    Send sample alerts is only available if the alert is active.
    The Send Sample Test Alerts: <TestName> window appears. The table lists the sample alerts that can be sent.
  4. Select the alert and click Send Alerts.
