In BizTalk360 Cloud, there are 2 main types of alarm you can create:

The create alarm screen is flexible; you can simply create a regular alarm or a threshold alarm, or you can use the consolidated alarm to monitor both regular and threshold conditions.

When you add a new environment to your BizTalk360 Cloud account, the environment will be created along with a demo alarm, if you have enough free artifacts on your plan.

We have introduced the concept of Demo Alarm to give you a feel of how the UI will look when you actually create an alarm and configure the monitoring for the environment. The demo alarm will be configured with up to 4 artifacts (receive location, orchestration, send ports, and host instances) from any of the applications in your environment. The demo alarm can be reconfigured or deleted as per your requirement.

The count of artifacts that are mapped in the demo alarm will be automatically deducted from the count (of artifacts) offered by your subscription plan. For ex., if you are on a Free plan (10 artifacts), the 4 artifacts mapped to the demo alarm will be deducted from the count of 10 and you will only have 6 artifacts remaining that can be mapped further.
