Alert List Widget Creation

Last updated on 02 November, 2022

Creating an Alert List Widget involves configuring display settings that control what information is displayed in the widget and for how long, and building the table that is displayed in the widget. You can add as many Alert List widgets to your dashboard as needed.

Table Settings

You can use the Table Settings to choose a font size for the text in the widget and choose from a list of sounds to play for newly triggered alerts. The Table Settings allow you to build the table for your alerts by choosing which columns to display in the widget.

The following table displays the types of columns available in Table Settings:

Column TypeDescription
LogicMonitor Default ColumnsThese columns are provided by LogicMonitor and are automatically available to you in the Table Settings column list. Default columns can be deactivated so they are no longer visible in the table widget, but they cannot be removed. You can reactivate the column from the Table Settings at any time.
Custom ColumnsYou can add custom columns to the Alerts Table that display the following:
Properties – start typing the name of the property whose values you’d like to see for each alert into the Add Custom Column field and matching search results will autogenerate as you type. For more information, see Resource and Instance Properties.
Tokens – Prepend and append the token name with “##” (for example ##ALERTID##). Token names are not case sensitive (##AlertID## also works). Search results are not autogenerated when typing token names into the Add Custom Column. For more information, see Tokens Available in LogicModule Alert Messages.
Note: Values assigned to the properties listed below will be blurred out in the Alert List table for security reasons:
Properties with names ending in .pass, .auth, .key, or password
The snmp.cmmunity, snmp.privtoken, and snmp.authtoken properties
The aws.accesskey property

Requirements for Creating an Alert List Widget

Understand the scope of the Alert List widget, such as deciding on which filters you want to view in the table.

Creating an Alert List Widget

  1. In the Alert List widget creation form, complete the Basic Information fields. For more information, see Standard Widget Configurations.
  2. As desired, select the following Alert Settings options:
    • Display filter selections on widget: View the applied filters at the top of the table in the widget.

Note: Only alerts that match the applied filters will display in the widget. For more information on these filters, which function the same here as they do on the Alerts page, see Managing Alerts from the Alerts page.

  • Only display alerts that occur within the time range set on the dashboard: To hone in on alerts occurring within a specific timeframe.

Note: If this setting is not enabled, the time range defaults to the global default time range specified in your user preferences.

  1. In the top left corner of the table, select the Tables Settings icon to begin configuring table settings.
  2. Select a Font Size for the table text.
  3. Select whether to Play sound for new alerts, and then select the type of sound to play for each alert level (Critical, Error, Warning).

Note: The sounds will only play from the Alert List widget when you have the dashboard open.

  1. Decide whether to keep just the default columns or to add custom columns to your table. For more information, see Table Settings.
  2. As necessary, drag and drop columns in the list to rearrange them.
  3. As necessary, select the eye icon next to a column to temporarily deactivate the column.

Note: The column will remain available and in its current position in the Table Settings list. Select the crossed out eye icon to reactivate the column in the table.

  1. Select a Widget Color Schema. For more information, see Standard Widget Configurations.
  2. To preview the widget before saving, select Preview in the top right corner of the widget form.
  3. Select the Save icon in the top right of the widget form to save the widget to your dashboard.
