Alerts in Incident Response

From creation to resolution, Incident Response enables you to manage your alerts through the entire alert life cycle.

Alerts are automatically grouped during ingestion and before Response rules are run. See Automatic alert grouping in Incident Response.

The Assigned to and Responder list fields on an alert specify who should be notified. When a team is selected as a responder, team rules are checked to determine which schedule to use for the notifications. An alert can be assigned to multiple teams. Responders are notified according to their notification preferences. Your profile in Incident Response.
