@analogue @chris_dev You will also need to disable the Availability Monitoring view the application’s legacy Alert policy:
- In the APM application, click Alerts > Edit Alert Policy
- Click title of Alert Policy where downtime alerts are set to ON.
Uncheck “Alert when any ping URL is unresponsive for
Once this is done, the URL can be saved as blank.
@chris_dev We are not planning to deprecate Availability Monitoring at this point. However, with the legacy alerting EOL, notifications based on Availability Monitoring results will stop.
You’re correct that there is no way to tie a Synthetics monitor entity to an APM application entity. However, APM transactions generated by Synthetics traffic are prioritized for trace collection and do establish linking on an individual transaction level, further detailed here.
That said, I think being able to establish a connection between APM app and Synthetics monitor is a great feature idea that is often asked for. I will pass this on to our Product Management team for their review.
