Abstract

Cortex XSOAR users can control details, preferences, and notifications, by changing the notifications settings in their user profile.

Each user can define their own details, preferences, and notifications. To configure, click your username, and select User Preferences. These preferences do not affect other users.

  • Preferences:

    Option Name

    Action

    Default landing page

    The page to load by default, when logging in to Cortex XSOAR. Can be Incidents, Dashboard, Playbooks or Scripts.

    My avatar

    Upload an image to display as your avatar in Cortex XSOAR.

    Keyboard Shortcuts

    Use a shortcut to open the GoTo bar to search, investigate, and initiate actions. To change the shortcut letter, click the letter in the box, type a letter, and then save. The shortcut value must be a keyboard letter (A to Z).

    Note

    If Keyboard Shortcuts does not appear in the Preferences tab, the default keyboard shortcut can only be set on the Server Settings page.

    Timezone

    Select the timezone to display your Cortex XSOAR data, which affects the timestamps displayed in Cortex XSOAR, such as auditing logs, and exported files.

    Note

    If Timezone does not appear in the Preferences tab, the timezone can only be set on the Server Settings page.

    Timestamp Format

    The timestamp format as displayed in data tables, auditing logs, and exported files.

    Note

    If Timestamp Format does not appear in the Preferences tab, the format can only be set on the Server Settings page.

  • Notifications: Configure which notifications to receive. Notifications are presented by categories: My Incidents, My Playbook Tasks, My To-Do Tasks, and Other Notifications. By default, all of the categories and available channels are selected.

    Email notifications are enabled by default. Every email notification from which you can unsubscribe includes a link at the bottom of the email to bring you directly to the User Preferences page where you can edit your notification settings.

Note

To set your active/away status, click your username and go to Set Yourself as Away. Once you are set as away, a Zz icon appears next to your name and the menu item changes to SettingsSet Yourself as Active. Other users see you as active or away in dropdown lists, such as when assigning an owner to an incident. Your status can also be set by entering !setYourselfAs in the command line.
