Editing and Deleting Alert Types

Editing Alert Types

You can edit the names and descriptions of alert types, and specify whether they are Enabled. When you enable an alert type, it is displayed in the list of available Alert Types.

Normally, items in a locked period cannot be edited or modified. However, alerts associated with a locked period can be updated, have their workflow progress and even be removed from the period or deleted.

To edit an alert type:

  1. On the Home page, click Application, then click Configuration , and then click Alert Types tab on left.
    Edit or Delete option on Alert Types dialog
  2. Select the alert type you want to edit, and click Edit.
  3. After editing the alert type, click Save and Close.

Note:

For alert types that are associated with Transaction Matching, you cannot modify the Match Type.

Deleting Alert Types

You can delete alert types. When an alert type is deleted, the alert is not deleted; rather it loses its alert type assignment.

To delete an alert type:

  1. On the Home page, click Application, then click Configuration , and then click Alert Types tab on left.
  2. Select the alert type you want to delete, then under Actions, click Delete, and then click OK
