How is the priority of an alert calculated in the Alert Inbox? What is the difference between the alert severity and alert priority?

The alert priority which is displayed in the Alert Inbox is calculated from the alert severity (as defined in the template) and the current alert status:

Severity / Current Rating

0 to 2

3 to 5

6 & 7

In the default view, the alerts in the Alert Inbox are sorted by the calculated alert priority. You can also display the defined severity of an alert in a separate column. To do this, you have to click on Settings -> Column Selection and add the column Severity.
