Moving an Alarm

Move an alarm in Monitoring to another compartment.


To move resources between compartments, resource users must have sufficient access permissions for the compartment that the resource is being moved to and the current compartment. For more information about permissions for Monitoring resources, see Details for Monitoring.

When you move an alarm to a new compartment, its associated metrics remain where they are. After you move the alarm to the new compartment, inherent policies apply immediately and affect access to the alarm through the Console. For more information about moving resources, see Moving Resources to a Different Compartment.

For alarm troubleshooting, see Troubleshooting Alarms.
