APPS user accounts may have system alerts associated with them. These alerts are used to inform users of conditions that may affect their account or the system in general. Alerts have severity levels associated with them. Typically alerts at or above the warning level indicate that the user should take some action to avoid or restore an interruption of service. For example, a warning is typically issued to users as they approach their quota limit and an alarm is issued once they have exceeded their limit and their account has been locked.

Some alerts are sticky and may not be deleted by the user. Others may be deleted once the user has acknowledged them (see apps_delete).
