Alert based on issue owner

As we can see on the last screenshot here: https://github.com/getsentry/sentry/issues/14028
According to this we should be able to make an alert based on who its assigned to. I dont see “The issue is assigned to…”
Im running Sentry 20.11.0 eb42277 in prod and Sentry 20.11.1 4468076 in lab.
This is what I see:


Am I blind or am I doing something wrong here?

Another question, how would one go about and accomplish this: When an issue is assigned to a team -> send slack message ?

Ah, turns out this is behind the following feature flags: organizations:alert-filters, projects:alert-filters

I’ll reach out to the team to see if there’s a good reason to hide them for self-hosted and if not, enable them by default.

If you want to try this yourself, you can add these to the feature flag list in your config.

Got word back: you don’t need to enable this manually as it will be automatically enabled in the next release (and in nightlies). The reason is feature requiring a migration for certain old alerts to work properly so you may have issues if you enable them without the migration.

ah nice!
Thank you so much for checking it. Looking forward to the new release. When was filters introduced to Issue alerts? There must be someone else that has encountered this issue :slight_smile: ?

How about that bonus question? Do you have any tips on how to accomplish that?

I checked this out and currently we don’t seem to have anything that does exactly this. Some folks are working on a big revamp of the issue view along with some new functionality and that might have this. Until then, you may create alert rules per team like this:
