Manage notifications at an organization level

Notifications alert users in specific situations, such as the discovery of a vulnerability or an attack on an application. Organization Administrators can set default settings for Contrast notifications for all users in their organization. Individual users can choose how they want to receive these notifications.

There are two primary channels available for notifications:

  • In Contrast: Notifications are available directly in the Contrast application. Select the Notification icon in the top right header to view your notifications.

  • Email: A System Administrator can configure Contrast to communicate with an appropriate SMTP system to receive notifications by email.

Note

For some features that require user notifications, Contrast automatically notifies the affected users when a Contrast administrator enables the feature. (You can't control these notifications in the Notifications page.) Contrast requires user and administrator notifications for features including vulnerability status approval and other Policy Management settings.
