Cloudlog's author runs my copy of Cloudlog on a computer at his end because everything is done on Linux machines, which I know nothing about.
My workflow: WSJT logs my FT-8 contacts to its own ADIF file, which I upload to Cloudlog every few days All other QSOs are handled by N1MM Logger and the ADIF file it generates is uploaded to Cloudlog as well. Cloudlog can generate an ADIF that contains all logs from WSJT-X and N1MM, with LoTW status for both.
JT Alert requires that I have an internal "logging" function turned ON in order to use Rebuild Alert Database. I don't want another QSO logger. It would be a lot easier to simply read the ADIF file Cloudlog can generate, but it's not able to do that.
73 and thanks!

My log is saved on google drive (web) and jtalert finds it. Does your cloud log include any kind of path to the file

My understanding of how things work is pretty much as you described. However, I use a logger (Cloudlog) that is web based and stores my logs in "the cloud". There's nothing on my computer to sync with JT Alert. I can download an ADIF from my logger and I think JT Alert can read it but I'm not sure and am a little scared of making a mess of things.
I update my alert list manually every week or so; I don't work that much new stuff. I also keep countries and states on the alert list until they are QSLed. I don't know if JT Alert lets me do that.
73 and thanks again,

Like you (I think) I get stuck in terminology. I am a very literal person. Laurie takes great care to be precise, but in this environment of three or more apps trying to work together, some terms get duplicated.
As I understand it, the "alert database" in this case is the database within JTAlert that keeps track of what you want to be alerted for.
When we "rebuild the alert database" (by the way, terminology for this action was recently changed to better describe it) we are scanning the database of the logging app, to see what we have confirmed or not "as of right now."
This should be done after any new contacts have been confirmed in the log, such as after updating the log from LOTW. Then for example, JTAlert will see that we no longer need a country or prefix or whatever you are looking for, and no longer bother you with alerts for stuff that you have confirmed.
Hope this helps.
