For various conditional alerts it would be beneficial for the alert to self-acknowledge or otherwise close the alert when the condition returns to normal.
Specific Example: Reboot required after software update
In some environments where folks like managers get touchy about alert counts this creates wasted time for the system admins and analysts to randomly clean up what is effectively an informational notice on a constant basis.
Alternately add a time threshold. Informational event for the condition, vs an alert event for a condition more than x days. preferably a configurable time.
Adding to this, when installing the software to a new server, the alerting can happen and resolve itself in seconds but sends out an alert. There should be an ability to snooze alerts and have them automatically snooze for x number of minutes after the initial install

We waste to much time with alerts that need to clear themselves when the issue resolves itself. We are spending to much time looking at stuff that fixes itself and have to manually clear the alert. This needs to be a priority.
