Enhancing monitoring rules

Order monitoring rules should be based on the combination of count of orders in a particular status for a period of time. This will help to monitor the orders when an agent is not working fine or a technical glitch in the system and can react and fix the issues

Below are few use cases

GIVEN:There are multiple order cancellations

WHEN:there is incorrect inventory or systematic issues

THEN:Operations team will be alerted when number of order cancellations become 20 in last 1 hour

GIVEN: There are multiple orders in backorder status

WHEN: there is incorrect inventory or systematic issues

THEN: Operations team will be alerted when number of orders in backorder-ed status reaches 20 in last 1 hour

    I have updated the usecases for clarity. The monitoring OOTB is for each order which is the order monitoring but the request of enhancement is status monitoring. i.e. if a status has X #of orders in last Y hours raise an alert

    One can configure Order Monitoring rules to notify if an Order remains in the same status for 'X' amount of time.
