Log Insight - Admin needs "manage alerts" capabilities

  1. Admin user logins to LogInsight
  2. There is an error icon: :smileyalert:
  3. The errors (on click) show up in popup window

Problem 1: When this popup window is closed – there is no way to find these errors in UI. Not so important or urgent, but would be nice to have.

Problem 2: As admin I should be able to find bad alert definition (even if created by other user) and correct it. So, the error “1 new event found for alert: ePass Exceptions". Reason: Illegal semicolon, not in group” tells me there is a problem, but I cannot find this alert definition in admin’s “Manage Alerts”… the reference to SMTP Configuration page is irrelevant here, these mis-configurations are in some user alert definitions... Admin should have ability to edit any user's alerts.

thank you,

ildus
