Integration Health Status Alert
What is an integration health status alert?
An integration health status alert is an email alert that will notify the selected users anytime there is a change in an integration's status, ex. the status changes to failed or a failed status changes back to operational. A single integrator or an entire technical team can be proactively notified of integration status changes so any issues can be quickly identified and resolved.
