Automated Actions

This section describes the various actions that Nightfall takes automatically when a violation is detected. You must turn on the toggle switch to enable an action. You can also set the timeline as to when an action must be taken (immediately after detecting a violation or after some time).

Currently, Nightfall supports the Delete automated action for the Slack Pro and Business+ editions.

You must first turn on the toggle switch to enable any of the automated actions.

Once you enable the toggle switch, you can configure when the action must be applied.

If you select immediately, the action is implemented automatically after the sensitive data is detected.

If you select After, you must also set the time frame as to when exactly the action must be applied, after detecting the sensitive data.

The action is described as follows.


The delete action automatically deletes the message or attachment that has sensitive data. This is a permanent action and cannot be reverted.
