Conditions will be searchable and taggable soon!

Hi friends!

As part of the What’s On Deck series, I wanted to post a quick note about a couple of small but useful features that will soon be available. Let’s dive right in!

Searchable conditions

As you may have discovered, actually finding a condition that you want gets more and more difficult the more policies you have configured. This feature will alleviate that, allowing you to much more easily find the alert condition you would like to edit or examine.

You can find the “power bar” at the top of the UI in New Relic One.

If you input a condition ID or a whole or partial condition name, the results will include a link to the condition! This should make finding individual conditions much easier than it has been.

Tags on conditions

We are working on making conditions into fully-fledged entities in New Relic One. One of the benefits of being an entity is that the search bar can find it (as mentioned above). Another benefit is that custom tags can now be added to alert conditions, making it easier to organize them by team, or cluster, or any way that fits your use-cases.

Using a tagging mutation in Nerdgraph will allow you to manage the tags on your conditions. Note that in order to add tags, you will need to query the condition to get its entity.guid.

Once you’ve added tags, you will be able to filter by those tags in Nerdgraph and the tags attached to an alert condition will be returned when you query that condition using Nerdgraph.

UI elements for this feature will come later, but this should already help to manage and organize your alert conditions.

These features will be available soon. Watch out for them!

Hi All ,

I just want to let you know that this feature is live in production.
Please check it out.

Adding tags to conditions, such as a “team” tag, will pass that tag down to the resultant incidents and issues. This will make it easier to set up “workflows” for notifying teams. It is better to have a couple of workflows per team, than having a workflow set up for every policy.
