Hypothetically speaking if I do not have a transaction failure alert set-up on my active backbone test, would I still be able to activate Auto Retry on Error on said test to see improvements in my availability metrics in reporting? Or is this feature only limited to working when there is an active alert enabled on a test? If the answer is the latter, could we add this functionality in later development?

Currently, Retry on Error can only be activated for Transaction Failure alerts for Backbone Single URL tests. The alert must be enabled for Retry on Error to be used. For more details, see the Knowledge Base article Retry on Error for Transaction Failure Alerts.
Please add your ideas of how the functionality can be expanded to this Forum post: More Retry on Error ideas.
