Introduction:
A summary alert provides a way to show the status of multiple underlying simple alerts with one overall status.

This is how it works for Trigger Alert Notification state for Any Alert or All Alerts. The Any Alert option uses the maximum state of all the alerts. The All Alerts option uses the minimum state of all the alerts with a state of more than 0 (not reporting).

Example: You have a summary alert that consists of the following alerts:

Alert: A; State: 0
Alert: B; State: 1
Alert: C; State: 1
Alert: D; State: 2
Alert: E; State: 3

In this situation, the Any Alert option takes 3, and the All Alerts option takes 1
