System notifications

IBM® QRadar® continuously monitors all appliances and delivers information, warning, and error notifications to the QRadar Console, making it easier for you to monitor the status and health of your deployment.

To show system notifications on your screen, you must configure your browser to allow pop-up windows and ensure that the Enable Popup Notifications check box is selected in your user preferences (User preferences icon). If you disable desktop notifications for QRadar, you can still view the system notifications under the notifications (Bell icon for notifications) menu.

Note: Browser notifications are supported for Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Microsoft Edge 10. Microsoft Internet Explorer does not support browser-based notifications. Notifications in Internet Explorer appear in a QRadar notification box. The way that the notifications appear and how long the messages stay on the screen might vary between browsers.
