Managing notifications

Snyk automatically notifies you when new issues are found in the projects you are monitoring. These notifications can help make you aware of new risks in these projects.
Notifications can be sent:
  • By email, if you have not disabled these in your your notification settings. Note: setting a Project to inactive will not stop Snyk from sending notifications, you must disable notifications separately for that Project.
  • By Slack, if you have set up Slack integration.
Snyk also sends you a weekly update summarizing your security status across all of your organizations.

Snyk offers notifications for:
  • vulnerabilities
  • license issues
  • weekly summary report
  • usage alerts
  • report status

Snyk includes a range of controls to manage your own notifications.
Administrators can also manage the notification defaults for others in the group or organization.
You can also send notifications for an organization to a designated Slack channel.

Define the notification settings at the group level to define the template for how Snyk sends issue alert emails, weekly report emails, usage alert emails, and report status emails for organizations created in that group. You can also access the default settings for existing individual organizations at the group level.
When you change the group default settings, it does not change the settings for existing organizations or projects. Individual users can override the default notification settings.
To navigate to the group level notification settings:
  1. 1.
    Navigate to the Group overview for the group you want to change.
  2. 2.
    Select the Settings icon.
