A Workflow Engine function that closes alerts.

  • As a best practice, it is better to use Auto Close rules to close alerts instead of the Workflow Engine. When possible, you should use the Event Workflows engine to prevent unnecessary alert creation. This way you can avoid creating an alert and immediately closing it during enrichment.

  • You cannot modify a closed alert. If this function is not the last in a workflow, any subsequent functions that attempt to modify the alert may cause the workflow to fail.

This function is available as a feature of the Workflow Engine v1.2 download and later.

This function is available for alert and enrichment workflows.

The workflow sweep up filter applies to this function. If the workflow has a sweep up filter, the function closes alerts the filter finds too so that other moolets can process them. For example, if you export alerts for reporting purposes.
