Create a DPA alert group

An alert group defines a set of alerts to be run against a set of database instances. Alert groups simplify alert configuration and help make alerting more consistent across the monitored database instances. When you add alerts to an alert group, you do not have to select database instances within each alert definition. Instead, you select the database instances just once for the entire group. If the list of instances changes, you can update it in only one place.

If you select database instances within an alert definition and you select other database instances for that alert within an alert group, all selected databases will trigger the alert.
