Select targeted entities for the alert condition

You can use targeted entities to monitor the types of data that matter most to your business.

A targeted entity is a specific entity you can create, view, and update. Learn more about these three options below.


Before you get started, make sure you create an alert condition first.

Add entities to a condition

For your convenience, the user interface organizes targeted entities into logical folders. You can use these folders to edit entities anytime. If applicable, the target folders reflect what your organization has defined for labels and rollup categories.


With the exception of Infrastructure, there's a limit to the number of entities you may add to a condition.

Alerts & AI > Alert conditions (Policies) > (selected policy) > (selected condition) > Notification channels: As part of the policy setup process, select one or more entities monitored by the selected product that will be the target entity for the condition.

To identify which entities or components monitored by the selected product will be the targets for the selected condition:

  1. Go to one.newrelic.com > Alerts & AI > Alert conditions (Policies), then select a policy.
  2. In the conditions list, select a condition and click Notification channels.
  3. Click Add notification channels, and then choose your notification channels.
  4. When you're done, click Update policy.

Continue the condition setup process

After you select the targeted entities for the alert condition, select Define thresholds to specify the thresholds for the condition.

View existing targeted entities

The policies index lists them in alphabetical order. To view or search for existing entities for an alert condition:

  1. Go to one.newrelic.com > Alerts & AI > Alert conditions (Policies)
  2. To select a policy name: Use the search box, sort any column, or scroll the list.
  3. Optional: From the Alert conditions page, use the search box to locate a specific condition.
  4. To view detailed information about entities associated with a condition, click Notification channels.


To view policy and condition information for a specific entity, select the Settings > Alert conditions page from the entity's product UI.

Update a condition's entities

To change the list of selected targeted entities for an existing condition:

  1. Go to one.newrelic.com > Alerts & AI > Alert conditions (Policies), then select a policy.
  2. From the list of existing conditions, select the entity name (for example, My app - Production) or number of entities (for example, 3 Targets).
  3. Click Notification channels.
  4. In the channels list, click a channel to edit it.
  5. Click the trashcan to delete a channel.
  6. Click Add notification channels to add a new channel.
