Severity on alerts and actions is useful for a number of reasons:

  • When receiving a notificaiton about an event (an alert that has been raised or an action that has been executed), severity will be prominently displayed so that the user can quickly gauge importance of the event
  • When showing alerts or actions on the dashboards, the color of the event's icon will correspond to the severity of the event
  • Users can customize minimum severity for which they want to receive notifications (either for particular resources or notificaiton types).  Learn more
