Set Up Targeted Rule Alerts
Ensure that the right alerts get to the right person at the right time using Targeted Rule Alerts.
Having the right alerts get to the right person at the right time is the best way to reduce the amount of noise and reduce the time to resolution for any issue within AWS. Individual users can set a default view and manage their email subscription preferences from their notifications page. By setting up Organization Notifications using Targeted Rule Alerts in conjunction with Real-Time Rule Alerts, you can ensure that time the right notification goes to the right person or channel within minutes.
Before you Begin
- Estimated time to complete: 15 minutes
- Determine which channel to use for notification, and have the appropriate access to configure the recipient (Email, Slack, or Webhook)
- Ensure you are a member of the Admin role
- Ensure you have enabled Real-Time Rule Alerts. Real-Time Rule Alerts is an opt-in feature available to Enterprise customers only
Configure a Targeted Rule Alert
Once you've ensured you have the appropriate access and notification details, you can configure a Targeted Rule Alert.
Log in to the Stax Console
At the top of the left-hand nav, click the chevron (⌄) to open the customer menu. Under the User Settings heading, choose Notifications to open the Notifications page
Once on the Notifications page, choose the Organization Notifications tab at the top to see a summary of all your existing organization notifications. You can edit or delete existing notifications by clicking the vertical ellipsis (⋮) to the right of the notification
To create a new notification, click the Create Notification button at the top right-hand side of the page. Choose either Email, Slack, or Webhook as the delivery method
For the chosen notification delivery method, follow the configuration instructions. For example, if you chose Email, you'll need to prepare to provide one or more email addresses. For Slack, you'll be prompted to choose a channel. In the case of a webhook, you will need to provide the webhook URL you have created
Once you've configured the delivery method, you can choose the View and Segment you'd like to create the notification for if necessary. Otherwise, you can proceed to the next step to configure the Targeted Rule Alert
Select the Notifications and Alerts you'd like to receive. To set up Targeted Rule Alerts, you must select either Resource-Level or Rule-Level Alerts. Choose to receive notifications for either all rules, specific rules, or filtered alerts.
Once you've chosen the alert type, you can filter further to receive notifications for either specific Rule Bundles or severities. You can also select rules you'd like to specifically exclude.
Choose "Next" and follow the prompts to complete the configuration of the Targeted Rule Alert
