How can I create a alert through SharePoint REST API?

Is there any REST API which can create the alert on a SharePoint List?

We have a customized website which user can view files on SharePoint, but when user want to subscribe to a folder or file changes, I couldn’t find any REST API to do so. Currently user can only go to SharePoint site, select the file or folder and click “Alert me” to create a new alert. Can I do this for user through a REST API call?

I found there are some information of CSOM API, but I can’t find any REST API related to alerts.

How to get a new mail alert notification popup for Postfix localhost mail in Ubuntu MATE 19.04

I have configured Postfix along with Mailutils to send and receive mails from localhost in Ubuntu MATE 19.04. I can read mails through terminal just fine.

Now how do I get new mail alert notification popups in system tray for incoming mails? Like upon a system boot and whenever new mail arrives afterwards. I’d like the notifications to stay there until dismissed. Many thanks.

Note: Just to be extra clear this setup is for “local only” mails.

Postfix version: 3.3.2-4 Mailutils version: 1:3.5-2build1

SharePoint 2010 Alert Me Not Sending Alerts when Item Deleted

I have an alert setup on a list:

  1. Send e-mail
  2. Only send me alerts when: All changes
  3. Send me an alert when: Anything changes
  4. Send notification immediately

I received an alert when the item was added but not when the user deleted it.

Does this have to do with the user who deleted the item (which was the user who created the item)?

Why would I not receive notification that the item was deleted?

Getting error “Object doesn’t support property or method ‘commitPopup'” when saving a new alert in SP 2010

In my SP 2010 environment, I have a html page, that has an iframe, and the iframe is the page where you create a new alert for a list. In the html page, I dynamically create the iframe and then insert some script nodes in it to run jquery in the alert page.

The problem is, when I click the save button, I get the error message

Line: 1 Error: Object doesn't support property or method 'commitPopup' 

coming from this line (which is the iframe source page)

<script type='text/javascript'>window.frameElement.commitPopup();< 

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks.

Loading thread from SharePoint Discussion Board into Smart Alert

We have set up Infowise Smart Alert on our SP 2016 site to alert users when new discussion items or replies are added to a discussion board. Right now, Infowise Smart Alert currently only sends the text of a new discussion reply. However, we want these alerts to also contain the rest of the thread that is part of that discussion.

The best approach we have come up with is to dynamically load that thread data into the post/reply, so that when Smart Alert Pro pulls the post/object object into that alert, the rest of the thread is also included.

How can we pull this data and add it to each discussion reply? I see several SP.Utilities.Utility methods for creating new discussion items or replies (createNewDiscussion and createNewDicussionReply), but none of getting that data.

Each alert freezes the desktop for some seconds

Say I am in an app that sends some alert. For instance, when in a terminal I write some gibberish and then press tab. Then, for some seconds, Ubuntu (I don’t know which subsystem really does it) freezes for some seconds before beeping. (I can still move around the mouse, but nothing else.) Then, if I repeat the same action again immediately, it works as expected (beeps without delay). But if I wait some seconds and try again, I get the same ill-behavior. I’m completely at loss here, and it’s really annoying. Help very much appreciated!
