Set up alerts
1 min read
Another part of preparing for DDoS attacks is knowing when your application is being attacked.
Cloudflare offers notifications for DDoS attacks, which you can set up on your account.
To set up a notification:
Under Notifications, select Add.
- HTTP DDoS Attack Alert
- Layer 3/4 DDoS Attack Alert
- Advanced HTTP DDoS Attack Alert
- Advanced Layer 3/4 DDoS Attack Alert
Enter a notification name and (optionally) a description.
If you are creating a notification for one of the advanced DDoS attack alerts, select Next and define the parameters that will filter the notifications you will receive.
