This API is for Conditions on Stream Alerts

If you want to work with alerts created for metric or span data, use the Alerts API.

Conditions are thresholds you set on a Stream, so you can be warned about any performance regressions.

Once you create a condition, you can leave it without altering rules and monitor the condition manually from within Lightstep Observability, or you can add alerting rules to have alerts sent out to destinations.
