Feature Request: Allow selection of multiple entities per "SYNTHETICS MONITOR FAILURE"

It’s not possible to select multiple entities per condition. I have to create a condition for each entity.

@enricostahn Thanks for the request! It’s worth noting that the restriction you point out is only if you’re working with Synthetics monitor sources—you can multi-select if you’re working with other data sources.

We’ll send this feedback along to our product team, but in the meantime you can likely accomplish some of what you’re trying to do by using NRQL conditions for the alert instead. As an example, you could select a count of failures from two different monitors (“Monitor_1” and “Monitor_2”) by writing a query of this sort:

SELECT count(*) FROM SyntheticCheck WHERE result = 'FAILED' AND monitorName IN ('Monitor_1', 'Monitor_2')

Then when you’re creating your alert condition, select NRQL as the product instead of Synthetics.
