The user has assigned a custom device poller to a node and configured an alert based on this custom poller and included in the alert is a trigger action to update the node status to a custom setting. This article discusses the following error that displays when testing the alert:
Execution of CustomStatus action with Entity type - Orion.NPM.CustomPollerAssignmentOnNode failed. CustomStatus alerting action works only with Orion.Nodes.
Altering the Nodes status via an alert action can only be performed by node-related trigger conditions. For example, "I want to alert on" must be configured for "Node", not "Custom Node Poller".
Note: Standardizing as well as adding additional flexibility for how object status is calculated being considered for a future release.
