How do I get tailgating alerts?

Security Policy Alert

Regardless of each user's own preferred pinned query alerts, you can also send security policy violation notices via email by entering the desired Tailgating email template at https://camio.com/settings/integrations/openpath like this:

The mustache variables are in bold below just to make them apparent in this example template. You can just copy/paste this example or customize it to fit your own security policy and culture. If you omit the {{user}} variable, then the tailgating notice is sent only to the owner of the account rather than to the people whose credentials were used in the tailgating incident.

 

------ begin example template ------

Dear {{user}}, 
You are receiving this message because you allowed someone entry using your credentials (known as "tailgating"). In accordance with our security policy, the tailgater must use their own credentials or be signed in as a visitor immediately. If the tailgater has credentials of their own, please insist they go back and use them. If the tailgater is a visitor, make sure you have seen the visitor's identification and that they sign in. In both cases, you must forward this email to security@acme.com and acknowledge that this process has been followed.
Please review {{event_link}}.

------ end example template ------

 

There are three mustache variables available for the tailgating email template.

Variable Replaced with Comment
{{user}} One or more users involved in the tailgating incident. Optional. If the {{user}} variable is included in the email template, then the email will be sent to each user involved. If not, then the email is sent only to the account owner.
{{event}} The URL to view the tailgating Event. Optional. The URL that replaces {{event}} requires authentication in order to view, so the recipient must be a Guest on the account (see how to add Guests)
{{event_link}} The URL to view the Event without authentication required. Optional. NOTE: The URL that replaces {{event_link}} can be viewed by anyone in possession of the link without sign-in. See more about sharing via link.

 

Managing on behalf of end customer

If you're managing the account of another user, then be sure to add the user= query string parameter. For example, if the end user that granted you Can Manage permission is customer@acme.com, then you use the link:

https://camio.com/settings/integrations/openpath/?user=customer@acme.com

 

Pinned Query Alert

Any Guest on the account can also get an alert anytime tailgating is detected by using the standard pinned query approach.

  1. Pin tailgating as the query

  2. Choose via Email for notifications at https://camio.com/settings/notifications
