System Notifications

An overview of all of the notifications that Snipe-IT sends

The primary notification methods in Snipe-IT are email notifications and Slack notifications. Most of the notifications can be turned on or off based on particular settings, but we thought it might be helpful to lay out all of the possible notifications the system generates.

Slack notifications will naturally only be sent if you have your Slack details added in Admin Settings > Slack.

New User Welcome Email

Please note that the New User Welcome email cannot be resent after the user is created, as passwords are stored in a one-way hash. Since we cannot decrypt them, we cannot send a user their password after they've been created. The user can use the Forgotten Password link to reset their password instead.
