What Are Actions?
Lucidum includes a feature called Actions. Actions are automations that are triggered by query results.
Actions include sending email messages, posting a message to slack, creating tickets, isolating infected devices, or making changes to Active Directory, among other options.
For example, you can define an action that sends an email to the IT team if Lucidum discovers one or more assets without endpoint protection.
Lucidum also includes a type of action for webhooks. For details on webhooks, see the manual Using Webhooks in Lucidum.
Structure of Actions
Actions include two pieces
A configuration that provides the connection and authorization information to communicate with the external solution.
An action that specifies the task to execute, the data to include in the action, and how frequently to execute the action.

Workflow for Creating Actions in Lucidum
To create an action in Lucidum, follow these steps:
Choose Action Center from the left pane.
In the Action Center, choose from the action types in the Channels pane.
To create a configuration for the action, click the Manage Configuration button. A configuration provides the connection and authorization information to communicate with the external solution.
Save the configuration.
To create an action, click the Create a new action button. An action specifies the task to execute, the data to include in the action, and how frequently to execute the action.
Save the action.
Lucidum automatically executes the action at the time and recurrence you defined in the action.
You can apply an existing configuration to more than one action. If a configuration already exists, you might be able to re-use the existing configuration and might not need to create a new one.
Action Limits in Lucidum
Each action can include up to 5,000 records.
You can trigger actions to run as frequently as every 5 minutes.
