Chapter 5. Enabling notifications and integrations

You can enable the notifications service on Red Hat Hybrid Cloud Console to send notifications whenever a vulnerability event is triggered. For example, you can configure the notifications service to automatically send an email message whenever a security issue affects systems in your installation, or to send an email digest of all the vulnerability events that take place each day. Using the notifications service frees you from having to continually check the Red Hat Insights for RHEL dashboard for event-triggered notifications.

In addition to sending email messages, you can configure the notifications service to send event data in other ways:

  • Using an authenticated client to query Red Hat Insights APIs for event data
  • Using webhooks to send events to third-party applications that accept inbound requests
  • Integrating notifications with applications such as Splunk to route event notifications to the application dashboard

A Notifications Administrator sets up behavior groups for events in the notifications service. Behavior groups specify the delivery method for each notification and whether the notifications are sent to all users, or just to Organization Administrators.

An Organization Administrator creates a User access group with the Notifications Administrator role, and then adds account members to the group.

Users who receive email notifications from events may set their user preferences so that they receive individual emails for each event, or a daily digest of events.
