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.

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