How to auto set a alert to Warning status?



Is it possible to auto set a sensor to "Warning" state as soon as it's alerts rather than auto acknowledging it? Also, an email will be sent to appropriate teams to act on, as soon as the sensor turns yellow?

I'm afraid setting a sensor to a Warning state rather than acknowledging the same is not possible. Notifications can, however, be sent as soon as the sensor state changes (this would include changes from Down to Warning or Down to Up, etc.).
