  • Alert Trigger Help

    CFGuy I need some help understanding how the alert trigger filters work. I have a trigger that sends a Pushover message to me for any alert in my county. But I end up getting a lot of flood alerts and they never apply since I'm not near the lake or river on the other side of the county.

    If I put the word "Flood" into the field "Alert Title Not Contains" I end up not getting any alerts?

    What does this field do? Is there a better way to ignore Flood alerts?

    The not fields have a bug. I need to get done with adding DarkSky and then I can start on rewriting the alert section. It needs several changes. So if you have any changes that you would like to see let me know.

      I plan to use the Alert triggers and filters to send pushovers with different priority and sounds for "Tornado Watch" and "Tornado Warnings". I bet others would be interested is those and Hurricane Watches and Warnings. I'm not sure on the level of work required in this ask.

      Maybe checkboxes for those types of alerts to make it easier. Of course with working filters I can create them but, it is hard to test functionality since they happen so rarely.

        Have the same issue. I want a single alert trigger that matches all warnings except for ones specified in the not contains fields.

        For the alerts and triggers, an easy way to generate "test" alerts would be really helpful. Maybe a Test section under the alerts where you could fill in a form for the alert name, alert title, alert summary, category, urgency, severity, certainty, and area. You could fill all these in and click generate. Then the PI would evaluate this test alert as if it came from NOAA. After testing was done, you would have another button on the test tab that would remove this test alert.

          I had been waiting on a requested feature to be added to plugins. Since it has been so long I am going to give up on it and move on.
          Right now, my first priority is getting some new providers added to try to keep the plugin alive.
          After that, I will start on new stuff. The Alert section rewrite has been high on my want list for a long time.

            The ability to copy alert triggers to make it easy to create new ones when only a couple of parameters might change would be helpful.
