How to Subscribe to Service Advisories That Notify You of Updates, Changes And/or Issues Affecting Everbridge.

Description

Everbridge communicates product updates, maintenance activities, service degradation events, and system status alerts via service advisories (emailed to subscribers and/or posted via a link to our status page from the Everbridge Support Center). Service advisories are available on the Everbridge Status page for thirty days. Only Everbridge users who subscribe to the desired features will receive the alert emails. Everbridge will send a product announcement to all Account Admins and Organization Admins only for exceptional events.

Once users have subscribed to receive service advisory notifications, they receive an email whenever a service advisory or update is published. Users will only receive emails for the feature they subscribed to.  

For service degradations, users will first receive an email identifying the affected component. Another email will follow communicating the impacted feature.  Further updates will only be sent to users who have subscribed to the specified feature. The original advisory is sent to a wider audience until engineering is able to identify the exact feature impacted.

 

To Subscribe or Modify Subscriptions:

  1. Log in to the Support Center.
  2. Navigate to the Service Advisories tab or the Status page.
