Creating an NRQL Alert for jobs running once a day



Hi, we have several scheduled tasks which only run once a day. When the jobs run they create a custom event which gets stored in Insights.

I’d like to create an Alert to inform me when the job did not run.

However this doesn’t seem possible in the NR Alerts setup. The time window is restricted to 120 mins.

If there any way I can configure an alert to trigger if the event has not occurred in the last 24hrs?

Any ideas much appreciated.
