Clarification on JMC-5835

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,
