  5. Set the alert destination server URL.
    Enter the URL of the server that you configured to receive HTTPS alerts. You can then test the connectivity to the server (Test URL). If the connection is valid, you will see af-url-test-success.png .
    Self-signed server certificates are not supported. Server certificates must be signed by one of the trusted certificate authorities (CAs). Refer to Supported Trusted Certificate Authorities for more information.
    You can View supported cipher suites to see the list of supported TLS 1.2 trusted certificate authorities.
  6. Set the alert Digest to 5 Minutes or Daily.
    Digest sets the frequency with which AutoFocus checks for samples that match the alert criteria. AutoFocus collects all samples that match the alert criteria during the digest period and sends them in a single notification.
