How to Configure SMS Alerts through Policies and Actions

Version: 5.x
Deployment: All deployments

This topic details how to configure SMS alerts through policies and actions in AlienVault USM Appliance.

First, confirm with your mobile phone carrier if they offer the ability to send emails through an SMS service mail relay.

Format for sending SMS through your carrier mail relay would be {phone number}@provider.domain

For example, [email protected]

Next, follow the steps in Configuring a Policy to Send Emails Triggered by Events to create a action for sending emails and associate it with a policy based on your requirement.

Note that due to limitation on SMS message size you may require to specify minimum of event details in the MESSAGE: * options of the action you create.

Example:

  • DATE
  • PLUGIN_ID
  • EVENT_ID
  • RISK
  • PRIORITY
  • RELIABILITY
