Can't add an alert - association not valid error


#1

Hi. I’m trying to add an alert for G/LD-024 but I’m getting an error saying that association is invalid - any ideas?


#2

Looks like part of the database / Watch system is down at the moment…

Thanks - I didn’t think I was doing anything wrong… like trying to climb a hill that doesn’t exist :grinning:

Spotlite still works, and doesn’t rely on summit verification.

The DB is back now. Either the shared server crashed, or was being patched and rebooted or there was an internal network issue. I had a quick sniff at work and could see the hosting infrastructure was running and responding quickly but our stuff was unreachable. I got an error email from the SMS server saying there was “an issue” at 14:55 UTC and I looked at 16:00UTC when I got home and it was up and running. My money is on a patch and reboot.

Thanks for the info.
