Activity Feed & Realm Alerts¶
On this page
MongoDB Atlas provides an Activity Feed that displays events for each project. Realm activities are included in this feed. To view and/or download only Realm events, you can specify a filter, as described below.
Project Activity Feed¶
There are two ways to access the Project Activity Feed: through the Atlas UI, and through the Atlas API. The following Atlas documentation pages describe each approach:
Realm activities are a subset of Atlas alerts. You can filter the Project Activity Feed results to show only Realm events, or a subset of Realm events. To do this, click the Filter by event(s) menu and check Realm. In the right-hand side of the menu, you will see all Realm events selected. Deselect any that you do not want to see. The feed list automatically updates with each change you make.
The Activity Feed does not support filtering events by Realm application, but each event (and its corresponding alert) provides context and routing information for the appropriate application.
The Category for all Realm activities is "Realm"; within that category, there are several Events:
A Sync process has failed and cannot be restarted
A Trigger has failed and cannot be restarted
URL Confirmation for Static Hosting
A Custom URL is confirmed for static hosting
A user (or Code Deployment) deployment has succeeded
A user (or Code Deployment) deployment has failed
Request Rate Limit
An overall request rate limit was hit
There are default alerts that map to three of the activities listed above. In addition, you can create custom alerts for the other Realm activities.
Default Realm alerts trigger a notification and email to the Project Owners. The three default Realm alerts occur when:
- A Sync process fails and cannot be restarted
- A trigger fails and cannot be restarted
- A Realm application hits an overall request rate limit
Custom Realm Alerts¶
For any activity that is not mapped to a default alert, you can set a custom alert at the Project level.
You create Realm alerts in the same way you create other Atlas alerts. When creating a new alert, in the "Alert if" section, select Realm from the Target.
