Resolve Alerts

Atlas issues alerts for the database and server conditions configured in your alert settings. When a condition triggers an alert, Atlas displays a warning symbol on the cluster and sends alert notifications. Your alert settings determine the notification methods. Atlas continues sending notifications at regular intervals until the condition resolves or you delete or disable the alert.

To view all open alerts:

1
  1. If it is not already displayed, select your desired organization from the Organizations menu in the navigation bar.
  2. Click Alerts in the sidebar.

To acknowledge alerts:

If an alert uses PagerDuty for alert notifications, you can acknowledge the alert only on your PagerDuty dashboard.

When you acknowledge an alert, Atlas sends no further notifications until either the acknowledgement period ends, you resolve the alert condition, or you unacknowledge alert. If an alert condition ends during an acknowledgment period, Atlas sends a notification.

To resolve an alert by increasing your cluster's capacity, see Modify a Cluster.

To view and filter the activity feed for an organization or project, see View the Activity Feed.

You can retrieve events for an organization using the Get All Organization Events API resource.
