This document contains some technical rules and limits for New Relic Alerts, including:
Permission levels and sub-account details
A user's role determines the Alerts functions available:
- Owner and Admins can add, change, disable, and delete alert policies, conditions, and channels.
- Users and Restricted Users can only view alert policies and conditions and their settings.
- Any user role can acknowledge an incident or close a violation.
These rules apply both to the New Relic Alerts user interface and to the New Relic REST API (v2).
