Alert or monitor dependencies

Does AlertSite have the ability to set up alert or monitor dependencies so that interrelated monitors don't trigger multiple alarms?  Ie...

 

Monitor 1 - website login

 

Monitor 2 - website login/add product to cart

 

If monitor 1 fails, monitor 2's alerts would be suppressed until monitor 1 clears.

 

Thx!

Re: Alert or monitor dependencies

It's not possible natively, but you could build something internally to accomplish this. It would just take a little creative dev work to design, but not too complicated.

 

You could essentially, have the 1st monitor trigger a POST notification or something similar sent to your internally built application, and have that error notification trigger an API call that disables the 2nd monitor. Once the 1st monitor clears, a 'Clear' POST or notification from the 1st monitor triggers your application to send another API call that re-enables the 2nd monitor again. Help on the API call that triggers the monitor change below. Hope this helps
