Alerting General Information
The alerting feature of eth.events is capable of monitoring and alerting mostly all of the information that a blockchain emits.
If you haven't checked yet, or just came here for the first time, you might contact us to get access to the alerting feature.
Make sure you can access the alerting feature by opening the Dashboard. You should see an (empty) list of alerting rules.
Just hit + New on the Dashboard page to add a new alerting rule. Give it a name, select the network and configure when your data is considered final. See the [Example section](#examples) for the actual configuration.
You can access the API with cURL or your preferred REST library. See the documentation for authorization details.
After you visit the dashboard you might see an empty list, you should create one first.
The name has just visible purpose.
An alert has a counter which shows how often an alert has been triggered since its creation. The counter is visible in the list overview.
An alert is always linked to a specific network which can be chosen from the dropdown.
The block distance needed to trigger this alert. Using
0 means that it will triggered directly without waiting for a new block to confirm.
Be aware that a reorg on the blockchain might happen and thus the alert will trigger false-positive results - you should wait at least
5 blocks to be on the safe side.
