Enabling and Disabling Monitors and Alerts

Last modified on August 16, 2021

You can enable and disable monitors at any time. Disabled monitors do not run and appear in gray in the monitor list. You can also turn off alerts for a monitor, so that the monitor continues running, but does not send notifications.

Notes:

  • You must be an Admin, Co-Admin or Power User to change the monitoring settings.

  • To disable monitoring or alerting temporarily, you can schedule a monitor blackout instead.
