Notifications

Notifications are essential for keeping track of the overall state of your network. When a new event occurs (based on the notification configuration), you will be notified by an email to the specified email address and you can respond accordingly. The SMTP server required for sending the notifications is configured automatically, so no additional modification is required. You can configure automatic notifications based on specific events such as detections, out-of-date endpoints, and more. See the Notification Description for more information about a specific notification and its trigger.

Notifications, users and permissions

The use of Notifications is restricted by the permissions of the current user. Every time the notification is executed, there is an executing user whose permissions are taken into account. The executing user is always the one who edited the notification last. A user can see only notifications that are contained in a group for which he has Read permissions.


important

For a notification to work well, it is necessary that the executing user has sufficient permissions for all referenced objects (devices, groups, templates). Typically, Read and Use permissions are required. If the user does not have these permissions, or he loses them afterward, the notification will fail. Failed notifications are highlighted with orange and will trigger an email to notify the user.

Create notification - To create a notification the user must have Write permissions for notifications on his home group. A new notification is created in the user's home group.

Modify notification - To be able to modify a notification, the user must have Write permissions for notifications on a group where the notification is located.

Remove notification - To be able to delete a notification, the user must have Write permissions for notifications on a group where the notification is located.


example

John, whose Home Group is John’s Group, wants to remove (or modify) Notification 1. The notification was originally created by Larry, therefore it is automatically contained in Larry's Home group, Larry's Group. The following conditions must be met for John to remove (or modify) Notification 1 :

John must be assigned a permissions set with Write permissions for notifications

The permissions set must contain Larry’s Group under Static Groups

Home Group is automatically detected based on the assigned permission sets of the currently active user.


example

Example scenario:

The currently active user account has the Write access right for Software Install Client Task and the user account Home Group is "Department_1". When the user creates a new Software Install Client Task, "Department_1" will be automatically selected as the client task Home Group.

If the pre-selected Home Group does not meet your expectations, you can select the Home Group manually.
