The Warnings tile in the console

A dynamic tile is available from the hub to warn about potential issues encountered. The number displayed in the tile corresponds to the number of new events that have occurred since last opening the FileAudit console.

The warning notifications

FileAudit allows you to get notified by Email for the different types of events encountered by the FileAudit service.

You can configure this feature from the Warnings view or the Service tab in the Settings view.

We highly recommend you to enable this feature.

  2. Select the type of issues you wish to be warned about.

  3. An error label will appear if your Email settings have not yet been configured.

    Click on the error label to go to the Email settings.

Please note

To disable the feature, leave the Email address empty or turn every switch off.
