Create and view notif group


Overview

A notification group or notif group is a feature that enables you to map email addresses to a group. It is similar to contact groups in GMAIL.

notif group can be used with directives like _raise, _trigger, etc to notify required stakeholders about relevant events by using its corresponding group-slug-name (group-slug-name is the name of the email group defined by the user). More on using notif group can be found in our help document: Using _raise directive.

Usage:

_raise notify_group trainer
>> _trigger report waf_pack daily_status_report notify_group web_admin

Here, trainer and web_admin are slug names for notif group.

Note- It is a best practice to use notif group slug name in workbook queries to send alert/reports to defined user groups. Whenever a need arises to add or remove an email address from the group, it can be done by editing the notif group.
