Issue:
After configuring Alerting Rules on a Dollar Universe node with notification set to use Generic Supervision, instead of the status being reported properly, an error message like the following is being logged to the u_spv_com.log file: 

ERROR:Unknown alert type "UNIV ABORTED JOB ...."
Environment:
Dollar Universe v6.x 
Resolution:
Under the Dollar Universe Node Settings, navigate to Alert Settings, then to Alerting Compatibility Options.
The value for "Compatibility mode for supervision scripts" has to be set to "V6.0".
​If it is not, you will get the unknown alert type error message.
