Multiple Choice for HTTP Status Codes alert

We were working on smart alert and just want to monitor 501,500,503,400,404 error. But don't see the abilities to add specific codes. Multiple Choice would be grate option to select alerts.

    Hi Sunil,

    As long as you're interested only in HTTP status code count (and not HTTP status code rate), you could select a wider range of HTTP status codes in the blueprint, and then narrow it down to the specific codes you're interested in later on, by adding a filter when selecting services/endpoints.

    Hope this helps for now in the short term, until we explore a possible better solution in the long term.

    Hi Siva, WE dont want to monitor all status code. E.g In single alert 404 and 500 error. Is it possible?

    Hi Sunil,

    Thank you for reaching out to us!

    When you choose the HTTP Status Codes blueprint in Smart Alerts for Application Perspectives, you do have the option to choose a Custom Range of HTTP status codes (last item on the drop-down list).

    Would that fulfil your requirement?
