After further investigation, I believe that the issue mentioned by Per no longer exists. As such, the issue can be closed. Also, there are already tests present to check if the notification trigger action is working as expected.


I would also like to note that the application alert dialogue doesn't pop-up when the JMC window is out of focus. If this is an issue, I think a separate bug should be created because its not clear if that would be expected/desired (since the user may not want to disturbed by a pop-up if the JMC window is not in focus).

Hi Salman,

The way it is currently supposed to work, the alert dialog only appears for two reasons: either because there is an Application Alert action, or because there is an error evaluating an action (for example an error evaluating the ‘Dump Flight Recording’ action). If I understand Per correctly, it seems he is reporting that it can take a very long time upon encountering an error, until the Action Dialog is finally shown. 

Either that, or there is a misunderstanding in how triggers are currently using the Alert Dialog (always on errors or when configured as an action).

Kind regards,
