With Cortex XDR you can choose to receive notifications to keep up with the alerts
and events
that matter to your teams. To forward notifications, you create a forwarding configuration that specifies the log type you want to forward. You can also add filters to your configuration to send notifications that match specific criteria.
Cortex XDR applies the filter only to future alerts
and events
Use this workflow to configure notifications for alerts
, agent audit logs, and management audit logs
. To receive notifications about reports, see Create a Report from Scratch.
