Sometimes it is helpful to use an existing alert definition as a basis when creating a new alert definition. Alert definitions can be duplicated for this purpose.
Proceed as follows to duplicate an existing alert definition:
Open the alert definition management.
At the end of the row of the alert definition that should serve as a template for the new alert definition, click on the "Duplicate" icon .
In the dialog that opens, enter the following properties of the duplicate:
Text field to enter the name of the new alert definition
Default: Name of the template (that is, the alert definition being duplicated), followed by the character string
Click on "Save" to create the new alert definition.
Finally open the Edit mode of the duplicate by clicking on the "Edit" button and configure it accordingly.
