Upgrades to Notifications

Alert Logic upgraded the Notifications feature to add new notification types. If you previously subscribed to incident or health status notifications in the Alert Logic console, your notifications are still active and sent to subscribed recipients.

For more information about the updated Notifications feature, see Notifications and Manage Notifications.

New notification types

Alert Logic added two new types of notifications:

  • Log correlationsYou can now set up and save a log correlation rule and configure it to create an observation or an incident and send a notification when a match occurs.
  • Scheduled reportsYou can set up and save a report schedule to generate a report periodically and send a notification when the report is generated. If you previously set up a Health Status notification, Alert Logic upgraded it as a scheduled report. After a scheduled report is generated, Alert Logic saves it for viewing and download.

Incident notification upgrade

Alert Logic created equivalent subscriptions that trigger on the same conditions.

How to find your incident notifications

You can view and manage your existing incident notifications from the Notifications page, which you can access from the Incidents page or the Manage group in the navigation menu.

How your incident notifications were upgraded

Alert Logic mapped your existing incident notifications to new ones:

  • For escalated incident notifications, the notifications list includes a notification with "Escalated" in the name.
  • For incident notifications based on threat level, the notifications list includes one notification per threat level category.
If you set up notifications for multiple threat levels such as high and critical, but prefer managing fewer notifications, you can delete those notifications and create one new notification for threat level categories of high and above. For information about how to delete notifications and create a new one, see Incident Notifications.

Alert Logic subscribed the email recipients that were set up in the original notification. To see the subscribed recipients, you can click View to the right of the notification name.

Health Status notification upgrade
