Create Monitor with SQL Query

Hi

The SCOM Monitor "Database Status" from MSSQL on Windows Management Pack checks if a DB is in offline, recovery, suspect or emergency state. But I can't configure, that it only alerts, when the state is suspect or emergency. Offline and Recovery are not a bad state for me, so i don't wanna an alert.

Is there a way to create my own monitor, that only alerts when the state is offline or emergency? Maybe with the SQL Query SELECT name, state_desc FROM sys.databases?

Kind Regards
Stately

    Sure you can query database state and filter out the unwanted:

    select name, state_desc  
    from sys.databases  
    where not state_desc in ('Offline', 'Recovering')  
      
    

    See https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/relational-databases/system-catalog-views/sys-databases-transact-sql?view=sql-server-ver15
    for all existing states
