Alert worked once when initially set up but hasn't triggered since

Hey all,

 

I've set up a really simple alert to trigger when we have any many maintenance jobs open for more than 30 days. I've got a tile in a dashboard that shows how many of these jobs we have, and the alert is set to trigger if the value is above 0.

 

The alert triggered without an issue when I first set it up, but it hasn't triggered since even though it should have. As you can see in this screenshot, the tile has a value of 1, the alert is set to trigger when the value is above 0, but nothing happens?

I had linked this to a Microsoft Flow which also triggered properly when first set up, but not since:

Any ideas why this wouldn't be working?

This is embarassing, sorry all. Turns out the data wasn't refreshing, I was looking at the wrong source. So that explains why it wasn't working!

The data is refreshed multiple times a day.

The alert then should work

The question that I have is does the value ever change from 1?
