Summary

Http Method Resource Description
GET /alerts/descriptors Gets a collection of all alert descriptors
GET /alerts/descriptors/{application_id} Gets a collection of all alert descriptors for the given application context.
GET /alerts/descriptors/{application_id}/{application_context_path}/{message_id} Gets a single alert descriptor
PATCH /alerts/descriptors/{application_id}/{application_context_path}/{message_id}/revalidate

Triggers rule validation for all described descriptors.

When a validation rule for a descriptor is triggered active alerts might be deleted if the conditions are not met anymore. Additionally, new alerts might be created if conditions of a descriptor are now met.
