Content Summary: Notifications in the Immuta UI fall into two categories: Access Requests and Activity. This page illustrates these basic Notification features in the Immuta UI.

To create and manage webhooks that notify users or other systems of activity in Immuta, follow our Managing Webhooks instructions in the API Reference Guides section.

Access Request Notifications

Request notifications alert Data Owners that users wish to subscribe to their data sources.

  • Users can view their request notifications by clicking on the cell phone icon in the top right corner of the Immuta Console:

    Notification Requests

  • After clicking on the icon, Data Owners can grant or reject requests directly in the notifications drop-down:

    Notification Decision

  • Users will see their pending access requests in the same drop-down:

    Notification Pending

Activity Notifications

Activity notifications are used to alert users to actions that other users have performed within Immuta. Data Users will also receive activity notifications when Data Owners accept or deny their pending access requests.

  • Notifications about activity in your data sources and projects will appear here.

    Notification Approved

  • Immuta Governors receive notifications for all data source policy activity within Immuta.

  • Any data source activity, including policy updates, is reported to the Governor via activity notifications.

Users can subscribe to email notifications by completing the following steps:

  1. Navigate to the User Profile page, and select Edit from the dropdown menu in the top right corner of the user profile information panel.
