Notifications and Alerts

Faddom generates Notifications and Alerts for application map-related events as well as administrative events. The notifications can be viewed on the Notifications screen.


The Notifications screen is a log of alerts, showing all historic events. You can access this by clicking on the bell icon in the top right. If there are new alerts, it will display a number to indicate the amount of alerts.

At the bottom, you have a breakdown that shows you the amount of alerts based on different criteria.



Alerts advise you of changes or events that have happened recently and that you need attention. Once you have attended an alert it will disappear from this screen and will show in the Notifications screen. 

To configure notifications of Alerts, you must first define the notification channels to specify the targets and then create the various notification subscriptions.

Notifications Channels

Types of notification channels are:

  • Email for sending email alerts per Faddom notification
  • Webhooks for pushing alerts to any system you use that supports webhooks
  • SNMP for sending SNMP traps per Faddom notification
