schedule an error simulation



Is there a way we can create a script to run and activate the simulate error process? There are certain high priority sensors that are checking services and emails after hours and I would like to schedule a weekly test to make sure the alerting end users are getting the notifications they need during business hours. I know I can manually simulate them but I would like to create a script to simulate multiple alerts at a time.
