Audience: All Immuta users

Content Summary: Notifications in the Immuta UI fall into two categories: Access Requests and Activity. This page illustrates these basic Notification features in the Immuta UI.

To create and manage webhooks that notify users or other systems of activity in Immuta, follow our Managing Webhooks instructions in the API Reference Guides section.

Access Request Notifications

Request notifications alert Data Owners that users wish to subscribe to their data sources.

  • Users can view their request notifications by clicking on the cell phone icon in the top right corner of the Immuta Console:

    Notification Requests

  • After clicking on the icon, Data Owners can grant or reject requests directly in the notifications drop-down:

    Notification Decision

  • Users see their pending access requests in the same drop-down:

    Notifcation Pending

Activity Notifications

Activity notifications are used to alert users to actions that other users have performed within Immuta. Data Users also receive activity notifications when Data Owners accept or deny their pending access requests.

  • Notifications about activity in your data sources and projects appear here.

    Notification Approved

  • Immuta Governors receive notifications for all data source policy activity within Immuta.

  • Any data source activity, including policy updates, is reported to the Governor via activity notifications.

  • Data Owners also receive notifications when users query their data sources that have policies enforced.

Email Notifications

If SMTP is configured for an organization's Immuta instance, users may receive notifications at the email address they configure in their profile.

Immuta compiles notifications and distributes these compilations via email at 10-minute intervals. The notification types differ for each role:

  • Data Users: Receive approval and denial of request(s) notifications.
  • Data Owner: Receive user requests, activity on your Data Source(s), and user queries on your Data Source(s) notifications.
  • Data Governors: Receive Data Source Policy activity notifications.

To subscribe to email notifications:

  1. Navigate to the User Profile page, and select Edit from the dropdown menu in the top right corner of the user profile information panel.
