You can set the severity that determines which alerts and violations you want to receive emails. The severity is set per policy, so when violations are triggered, you receive email notification depending on the setting here and the Severity setting in the policy that was violated. Emails are sent to the alias associated with the administrator user account you used to log in to Cloud App Security. Enter a phone number to enable Cloud App Security to send you text messages when alerts and notifications are sent, and set the severity level for which you want to receive notifications via text message.


    The maximum number of alerts that are sent via text message is 10 per phone number per day. The day is calculated according to the UTC timezone.
