Notifications

The Notifications page enables you to create and manage notifications that Kentik uses to communicate with users in a variety of portal contexts, including:

  • DDoS Defense: Notifications when traffic meets the conditions specified in a threshold of an attack profile, resulting in the triggering of an alarm (see Notifications in Threshold Controls).
  • Alerting: Notifications when traffic meets the conditions specified in a threshold of an alert policy, resulting in the triggering of an alarm (see Threshold Notify Settings).
  • Mitigation: Notifications when an automatic mitigation using a given mitigation method is triggered by conditions set in a threshold of an alert policy (see Notification Channels in Common Method Settings).
Create and manage notifications on the Notifications page.

Each notification channel represents a notification type (e.g. webhook, email) and one or more notification targets (e.g. for email notifications, a set of email addresses). Once a notification is configured in an Add Notification dialog it can be applied in the contexts listed above.

Notifications are configured in the Add Notifications dialog.
