Managing Notifications

In Netsparker Enterprise, you can view all the configured Notifications from the Manage Notifications window. You can Create, Clone, Edit and Delete existing Notifications.

You can also configure a Notification to inform email recipients, including recipients external to Netsparker, following a Scan Completed event.

For further information, see Configuring Email and SMS Notification Rules.

Notification Fields

This table lists and explains the columns in the Notifications window.
