Alert View

Organizing, viewing, and curating alerts is a vital piece of the workflow in managing security of cloud environments.

Note

The default view of the Alert Trends histogram is now seven days. Double-clicking the histogram reverts to displaying a date range covering one year.

Important

If a rule that triggered an alert is deleted, a generic icon (Placeholder_icon.png) displays on the Alerts page instead of the icon associated with the triggered rule.
