Create a Secure HTTPS Alert Action

In the following example, an HTTPS alert named
AutoFocus-alerts
is configured to send AutoFocus alerts to a web server using basic user authentication to enforce alert uploads.
  1. Select
    Alerts
    Settings
    .
  2. Add Alert Action
    :

  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.

  8. Save Changes
    .
    The Action drop-down contains all saved alert actions, which you can apply to samples matched to Unit 42, public, and private tags.
