Additional Information

This does not affect any functionality of DLP.  The News and Alerts feature is an RSS Feed that provides events and alerts about DLP that it collects from an internet location.

Enforce goes to the following URL to download alerts:

https://onprem-content.enforce.dlp.protect.broadcom.com/xml/DLPNewsAndAlerts.xml

If you can navigate to the above URL from enforce, you should be able to see alerts.

You can also verify this URL from Manager.Properties file from the config directory where DLP is installed.

com.vontu.manager.dlp.rss.feed.link = https://onprem-content.enforce.dlp.protect.broadcom.com/xml/DLPNewsAndAlerts.xml
