Alerting Usage

I’m looking over the Working with Platform Services section of the Programmer’s Guide, specifically the section on Alerting. All content relates to the usage of alerting with tag alarms. I was wondering, could I use the alerting system for other purposes? As an example, I’ll have a handful of configuration data for my module. Could I tie into the alerting system to raise an alert/alarm/whatever when a specific bit of configuration data was changed? Would this be considered a misuse of the alerting system, (assuming it’s possible) … ?

No, certainly not. The alert doesn’t have to be associated with a tag. You can submit anything you want to the bus that Ignition can use.
