Creating Projects and Clusters with APIs - Alerts

When setting up a new project with programatic APIs , the alerts are being sent to the group owner, which is the oldest user in the organization. This is not what we want, and I’m wondering what others are doing. I’m deleting all the alerts and then recreating them. Are you updating the exiting alerts? Are you creating/assigning another group owner?

I would love to be able to set up a default email address (Typically an distribution list) for the alerts to go to when I create the project.

If you bootstrap a user into the Project when programmatically creating it so that that user has the Project Owner role, then that user’s email address will receive email-based alerts.
