Alert Types, Targets, and Parameters

Learn how to set up and configure individual Alert Types from the Tenderly Dashboard and get notified when that particular event happens on-chain. Some Alert Types give you granular settings control,
To create and enable an Alert, you need to specify and configure the following components:
  • Alert Type: On-chain event that triggers Tenderly to send you a notification. There are 12 alert triggers to choose from.
  • Alert Target: Address or addresses you want to monitor. The Target options are the same across all Alert Types and include:
    • Address: Monitor a single address.
    • Network: Monitor all addresses deployed on a network of your choice.
    • Project: Monitor all addresses that are part of a project on Tenderly.
    • Tag: Monitor all contracts and wallets labeled with the specific tag.
  • Alert Parameters: Additional settings specific to the selected Alert Type.
  • Alert Destination: The place where you want to receive notifications. One Alert can send notifications to multiple destinations. There are 8 destinations where you can send and receive notifications.
The rest of this document focuses on different Alert Types.
Read the Alerting Quickstart guide to learn the steps for setting up an example Alert and enabling it.
