How to create Consumer Alert rules, Producer Alert rules and Infrastructure Alert rules.
Lenses provides a set with pre-configured Alert Rules and the ability
to create Consumer Alert rules. When rules are enabled, Lenses monitors the
relevant resources and triggers an Alert Event any time the condition is met.
Events can be integrated with any third party system via the Alert Integration plugins.
One of the Alert Rule property is its alert id, which is a low level identifier of an Alert type (do not mistake with category).
alert id is necessary when using API or CLI to manage alerts.
