Overview

GitGuardian’s real time monitoring allows alerts to be sent immediately when an incident is detected.

Events and notification preferences#

Configuring a notifier from your GitGuardian workspace allows you to push incident alerts to the channel of your choice (e.g Slack, PagerDuty...). These alerts will contain details about the incident such as the triggered detector and location (org and repository) without revealing the secrets detected or any other sensitive data, avoiding any further contribution to sprawling of secrets.

You can configure the notifier's frequency to send you alerts either for the first occurrence only and in case of regression or for all occurrences. We recommend the first option if you prefer having fewer alerts related to the same incident show up in your notification channels. If you don't want to miss anything, toggle the second option instead.

Selecting your notification frequency
