Email integrations allow you to direct notifications as emails to any specific email address. To set up an email integration, you'll need to select which notifications you want to send, choose the destination email address which you want the notification to be sent to and customize the message.

Creating an email integration

Navigate to the Integrations tab within Settings, then select New Integration.

Select Email.

You will see the Create Integration workflow:

1. Triggers. Enable the triggers you would like to integrate. For this example I’ve chosen to enable triggers for when my company’s score drops below 600, and for when a VIP identity has been breached. Click Confirm and next ->

2. Name and destination:

  • Create a name for your integration

  • Select the destination email address for the notifications to be delivered to

  • Enter the 'from' name

  • Select whether you want the emails sent from, or from a custom domain if you have it set up.

  • Hit Confirm and next ->

3. Review content:

  • Set the Email subject line

  • Customize the messaging for each notification by selecting it in the left hand panel under triggers and editing in the 'edit message' box below the preview.

You can choose to 'Send a test email' to see how it will look, and when you are happy hit Confirm and next.

4. Enable/Disable: Select the status you want for your integration upon completion, then select Finish.

You will now find your new integration in the Integrations tab within your settings, which can be enabled/disabled, edited or deleted.

Customizing your notification messaging

We've created a set of default variables for you to use with each trigger type (example below). You can click on the copy button on the right hand side of each row to copy that text. The messaging variables using Liquid syntax are extremely flexible - for more information on how to configure these, check out this article - “Using Liquid syntax to customize your integration”. The JSON payload data is at the bottom of this page for advanced users also.
