  • Red Hat Advanced Cluster Security for Kubernetes sends notifications on an opt-in basis. To receive notifications, you must first assign a notifier to the policy.

  • Notifications are only sent once for a given alert. If you have assigned a notifier to a policy, you will not receive a notification unless a violation generates a new alert.

  • Red Hat Advanced Cluster Security for Kubernetes creates a new alert when:

    • A policy violation occurs for the first time in a deployment.

    • A runtime-phase policy violation occurs in a deployment after you resolved the previous runtime alert for a policy in that deployment.
