The Data Alerts tab allows you to view previously generated Data Alerts. A Data Alert is generated when the Collection Server processes a SQL Server event that matches the alert rule criteria. Use Data Alerts to identify and investigate data manipulation on specific databases, tables, or columns.

The Collection Server generates one alert per SELECT event, even though the query may have accessed multiple audited columns.
