Getting started with alerts

Use alerts to monitor for and respond to specific events. Alerts use a saved search to look for events in real time or on a schedule. Alerts trigger when search results meet specific conditions. You can use alert actions to respond when alerts trigger.

This resource includes information, instructions, and scenarios for using alerts and alert actions. To start learning about alerts, see The alerting workflow. Review alerting options in Alert types.
