Add or remove policy channels

New Relic Alerts offers flexibility with the alert policy setup and maintenance process. For example:

  • You can create notification channels first or create policies first.
  • Then you can add channels to policies, or add policies to channels, as explained in this document.
  • You can also remove channels from any policy, or remove policies from any channel.

Check assigned policies

To check whether a notification channel has any policies assigned to it: Go to > Notification channels. The Policy subscriptions column lists how many policies are assigned to the channel.

Associate channels with policies

Admins or Owner
