Keytab notification states

There are three notification states: Normal, Warning, and Critical.


The Normal state displays the bell icon in gray. This means that no action is needed.


The Warning state displays the bell icon in orange. This happens 10 days before the Keytab expires. This means that you update the Keytab before it expires to keep Privacera services running.


The Critical state displays the bell icon in red. This happens when Keytab has expired. This indicates that the Keytab needs to be renewed to keep Privacera services up and running.
