Manage anomaly notifications


Required Permissions: Users Manager, Anomalies Viewer

The anomaly detection engine is always running. You can choose email notifications for near-real-time email alerts on detected anomalies or send alerts to your shared Slack channel with DoiT.

To manage your email notifications:

  1. Select your account name in the upper-right corner of the top navigation menu, and then select your name from the drop-down menu.

  2. On your Users page, select Notifications from the left-hand menu.

  3. To be notified of potential anomalies, select the Cloud Cost Anomalies checkbox.

    The Notifications screen with Cloud Cost Anomalies selected

    Specify the conditions to send alerts.

    • Only send notifications with severity: Set the minimum severity threshold that will trigger the alert notification.

      There are three severity levels: Information, Warning, and Critical. By default, the severity level for email alerts is Critical.

    • Only send notifications with cost of anomaly above: Set the amount of the cost of anomaly that will trigger the alert notification.

      The Cost of anomaly is the gap between your actual cost and the maximum cost in the normal range. You can't use decimals in this field.

    If you specify both options, you'll receive an alert when either one is satisfied.
