We are currently using Infrastructure to monitor multiple environments within our infra. Currently, if we want to use the same alert conditions for each environment, but send alerts to different channels based on environment we have to do the following:
- Create a duplicate alert policy for each environment with appropriate alert channels configured
- Duplicate all alert conditions for the new environment (changing the filter logic to target hosts within the environment in question)
This is doable if you have a small amount of alert conditions or policies, but very quickly becomes untenable over time. The current workaround provided by support was to use the API to create all of your duplicates. Ideally, you wouldn’t have to duplicate things; alert policies could be made more flexible and your alert conditions could be more generic.

We take feature ideas seriously and our product managers review every one when plotting their roadmaps. However, there is no guarantee this feature will be implemented. This post ensures the idea is put on the table and discussed though. So please vote and share your extra details with our team.
