Notifications

Overview

AttackForge provides email notifications to keep your teams informed even whilst on the go.
Every email notification is designed to provide important information relating to projects, vulnerabilities & user activity.
You can access Notifications via the global menu.

Project Team Notifications

Project Team Notifications are intended to help keep you informed throughout the lifecycle of a project. For example, you can choose to be notified when testing has commenced or stopped daily, when new vulnerabilities are discovered, or when a project is on-hold - plus more.
To receive these notifications, you must be a member on a project team. Your administrators and project coordinators will invite you to the relevant project teams. In addition, project-level notifications must be enabled on the project. Your administrators and project coordinators will configure this for you, per project.
If you decide to disable certain types of emails, even when they are enabled for you on the project - you will not receive them. You ultimately control the project notifications you will receive. However, under certain circumstances - an administrator or project coordinator may decide to force an email to be sent, for example new critical vulnerability that you should be aware of. Your administrators and project coordinators will configure any forced emails, per project.
The Project Team Notifications include the following:
    No Emails - Under normal circumstances, you will not receive any email notifications for any projects you are a team member.
    All Emails - You will receive all enabled emails for all projects you are a team member.
    Daily Start/Stop Testing - You will receive notifications each time a team member starts or stops testing each day, where this option is enabled on the project.
    New Critical Vulnerability - You will receive notifications each time a team member discovers a new critical vulnerability, where this option is enabled on the project.
    New High Vulnerability - You will receive notifications each time a team member discovers a new high vulnerability, where this option is enabled on the project.
    New Medium Vulnerability - You will receive notifications each time a team member discovers a new medium vulnerability, where this option is enabled on the project.
    New Low Vulnerability - You will receive notifications each time a team member discovers a new low vulnerability, where this option is enabled on the project.
    New Informational Vulnerability - You will receive notifications each time a team member discovers a new informational vulnerability, where this option is enabled on the project.
    Project Role Updated - You will receive notifications each time your role on a project has been updated, where this option is enabled on the project.
    Project On-Hold/Off-Hold - You will receive notifications each time the project is placed on-hold or off-hold, where this option is enabled on the project.
    Retest Completed - You will receive notifications each time a round of retesting has been completed, where this option is enabled on the project.
