Receive an alert when a defined rule is met

Users of a Spotfire need to be able to configure rules that trigger alerts when a rule is matched. The alert should be delivered to the user through for example email and provides a way for the user to quickly navigate to the analysis and investigate the reason for the alert further. The alert optionally may contain an image or PDF export as well. Example rules are:

* Periodic - trigger once every week, day etc

* New data is available in the analysis

* A threshold value for a calculation in a visualization is exceed or similar

* A value at least partially based on a data function is exceeded or similar

This helps users respond more quickly to deviations such as

  • inventory levels too low, or predicted to become to low in X days

  • Summary of bills that were due today but are not paid

  • A large order came in

  • An order with a short delivery data came in

  • Attach files

    Have you considered the Spotfire Alerting Extension?

    It would be good to also have an option to display a pop-up message or similar (an alert would be good, but a message window popping up should also be possible, something the user will notice). We work with Spotfire in a secured environment, sending email is not possible there.

    What I would request most is to have a rule check after all data has finished loading and all other background tasks like data functions have finished. Basically at the time when the analysis has completely loaded. The use case: We have some rather complex data flows where users have to extract data from one source and put it in the library, then the data is analysed with a dxp. Things can go wrong here and some consistency checking using rules would help to avoid errors.


Make the Spotfire Alerting Extension part of the OOTB product

Currently this is offered through Tibco professional services; it would be great to have as part of the product.

Alert Notifications

This would piggy back on the Alert system that I hear is in progress. However, it would be an intermediate layer between and Email/Text Alert and the Passive Dashboard usage. Applicable for Webplayer, Mobile, & Desktop Developer Client. ...

Make Alerting native, easy, expanded

Please add alert management tools directly into the Analyst Client that allows average users (with permissions) to set up. The current Automated Services method is too complex for average users and limited in functionality. Alerting should also be...
