Configure email notifications for NVD auto-updates

You can configure email notifications to be sent to interested parties, such as the vulnerability response group, when CVE records are updated. You can use the pre-configured notification included with the base system or modify it to better suit your needs.

Before you begin

If you want, you can create an email template with rich HTML formatting. This is optional, but it can make the creation of future notifications easier.

Role required: admin

Procedure

    The notification is pre-configured to automatically send email notifications to the Vulnerability Response group whenever new CVE items are downloaded to the NVD. The email message text is populated using the new.CVEs.available email template.
