Viewing and Deleting Notifications

While you are working in NetWitness, you can view recent system notifications without leaving the area where you are working. You can open a quick view of notifications from the NetWitness toolbar. You can look anytime, but when a new notification is received, the Notifications icon is flagged (netwitness_ic-flaggednotif_22x22.png).

Examples of notifications include:

  • A host upgrade completed.
  • A parser push to decoders completed.
  • A newer software version is available.

You can see notifications in these two views:

  • In the Notifications tray, you can see your recent notifications.
  • In the user Profile Notifications panel, you can view all of your notifications.
