This page describes how Forseti Notifier is used and run.

Notifier can either run as part of the scheduled cron job’s workflow or manually invoked using the Forseti command-line interface (CLI).

When the cron job runs the Notifier, it sends notifications on the latest violations from the previous Scanner run.

Running Notifier

Following are the CLI commands you can use with Notifier:

  forseti notifier --help

  forseti notifier run

  # Send the violations by inventory index id.
  forseti notifier run --inventory_index_id <inventory index id>
