When a user creates a ManageIQ alert, a Hawkular group trigger is created in
the background. From then, any changes to the ManageIQ alert are replicated to
the associated Hawkular group trigger until the alert is deleted, which causes
the group trigger to also be deleted.
While ManageIQ alerts have a direct relation with Hawkular group triggers,
ManageIQ alert profiles are a little bit more complicated. For each alert in a
ManageIQ profile, one Hawkular group member is created for each infrastructure
item in the profile.
This means that nothing is created in Hawkular if:
The alert profile is empty (has no alerts nor infrastructure items)
The alert profile has alerts but has no infrastructure items
The alert profile has infrastructure items but has no alerts
If a ManageIQ alert profile has one alert and has assigned multiple
infrastructure items, then the relevant Hawkular group trigger will have as
many members as infrastructure items are in the ManageIQ alert profile.
If a ManageIQ alert profile has multiple alerts and has assigned only one
infrastructure item, then each Hawkular group trigger will have one member.
With these two examples, you should be able to guess what will happen if the
ManageIQ alert profile has a set of alerts and a set of infrastructure items.
