Activating Notifications

How to activate and manage personal and team notifications for new or recurring vulnerabilities.

Personal notifications

You can access your personal notifications by first accessing the "Settings" panel and then clicking the "Notifications" link in the "Personal settings" box.

You will be presented with a list of notifications for which you are subscribed:

 

28311556

 

By default, team owners receive notifications for new critical vulnerabilities discovered on assets that are present in their team.

Vulnerability notifications will be sent every time a scan completes and a report is generated.

The notifications options can be changed or disabled by choosing the type of alert using the two drop-down menus visible in the "Notification" column:

Notification type

  • New vulnerabilities only - Only previously unseen vulnerabilities will generate a notification. If a vulnerability disappears and then reappears in the same form, it is not considered a new vulnerability
  • All vulnerabilities - Generates a notification every time a vulnerability is seen, whether it is new or not
  • No notifications - Does not generate a notification (disable notifications)

Severity level

  • Critical Only - Send notification only for vulnerabilities rated "Critical"
  • Medium and higher - Send notifications for vulnerabilities rated "Medium" or "Critical"
  • Warning and higher - Send notifications for vulnerabilities rated as "Warnings", "Medium" or "Critical"
  • All - Send notifications for all ratings of vulnerabilities: "Info", "Warnings", "Medium" or "Critical"

Team notifications

If you do not want to receive notifications directly to your personal address, but rather to a common team mailbox that you share with colleagues where you usually receive alerts, you can enable team notifications for a team mailbox (e-mail) by going to the "Settings" panel and clicking on the "Notifications" link in the corresponding team from the "Team settings" box.

You will be presented with a panel to "Manage team notifications":
