Manually group alerts

Alerts you think are similar can be grouped so that you can focus your efforts on the primary alert. Once closed, the related alerts are automatically closed.

Before you begin

The oldest of the highest severity alerts becomes the primary alert, and the rest become related alerts.

Grouped alerts are displayed under the primary in the alert list view, and you can see a count of related alerts.
Note: Once you group alerts, you can ungroup them. See Manually ungroup an alert.
