unable to alert on Device Control Violations

L0 Member

support says it is by design

the "Traps Logs Formats" kb makes no reference to them either

before I go through the headache of sending cortex logs to something for alerts can anyone confirm that they will even be present?

anyone have any other ideas on how to accomplish the task?

my only other option is api-keys but it is unclear that it will work either

Do you need explicit alert?
Because there is a Menu where you can see Device Control Violations in Cortex XDR console.

Same issue here.  We want an alert email sent when there is a device control violation.  It appears you can alert on almost anything else except for device control violations.

What are our options?

Hi @Eli_Searle 

Thank you for writing to live community! Yes, for now you can't configure Notification or email to sent when there is a device control violation however using this API, you may get device violations. 


Hope this helps!
