With the alerts firing from Prometheus into Alertmanager, the only thing left to do is to send requests to Jenkins to scale the service. We already created a similar Alertmanager config in one of the previous chapters, so we'll comment only on a few minor differences. The configuration is injected into the alert-manager service as a Docker secret.

docker stack rm monitor docker secret rm alert_manager_config
Now we can create a new secret with the updated Alertmanager configuration.
