These release notes give an overview of the changes for Release 2020.22 of the Wavefront service.
Starting with this release, newly created alert notifications include a link to the new Alert Viewer. Existing notifications continue to link to the Alert chart, but you can edit those notifications to also (or exclusively) link to the Alert Viewer.
From the Alert Viewer, you can view related alerts, drill down to responsible point tags, see past firings of the same alert, and more. Let us know what you think!
