Yesterday an alert came up at 1:30am regarding a failed synthetic api test.
When I checked the incident I saw that a single check had failed and that several checks every hour later were succeeding, yet the incident had not been closed.
This is the first time I experience this.

Validating that test yields success, so the test is working as expected. This seems to be a problem with alerts itself.
