Testing Notifications

Ensuring that the notifications work is very important, especially if you are using them to be notified of possible critical vulnerabilities on a live web application. You can do a dry run and test the notifications from the Test Notification node in the Notifications menu.

How to Test a Notification

  1. From the main menu, click Notifications, then Test Notifications.

  1. From the Event dropdown, select an event.
  2. In the Group Scan field:
  • Select No, if you want to test a single website (this displays the Website dropdown)
  • Select Yes, if you want to test a group (this displays the Website Group dropdown)
  1. From the Website dropdown, select a website
  2. From the Website Group dropdown, select a group.
  3. From the User dropdown, select the user.
  4. Click Test.
  5. The Test Result is displayed.

  1. Once a dry run of the notification is complete, the results will highlight the matching rule, and the recipients will be notified by email and SMS.
