Administrator Guide

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


    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.

  • 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.


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.
