Azure Application Insights Alerts work only once

    I am testing Azure Application Insights alert functionality. It seems to be either buggy or I don't know how to use it.

    If I create a new alert, based on the metric 'Server Exceptions', it seems to work once then never again. Once it fires, it seems to go into a state of 'Active' where there is an orange triangle with an !. See the image below. I created a new one, that I haven't triggered, and as can be seen in the image it has a green circle with a tick.

    This sort of implies to me that an alert won't fire again until one 'acknowledges' the alert, which is not a bad idea, but I can't see how to do that.


    Edit :

    I have just tried to use the 'Exception Rate' as suggested, but I think the minimum threshold to fire the alert would be an average of 1 exception per second over a 5 minute period.

    I must say it seems strange that my use-case isn't handled. I have a light weight Web API service that is so simple it should never fail but it could, and as a result if an exception occurs I want to receive an alert straight away.
