After you connect your cloud environment to Expel Workbench, the Welcome to Expel Workbench area shows a Healthy connection status with a green checkmark.

Instructions for how to trigger a test alert (a less fancy way of saying “incident simulation”) also appear in the Welcome to Expel Workbench area.


Click the linked text next to your cloud environment to see specific instructions on how to trigger a test alert.

Expel Workbench emails you within 15 minutes indicating an Incident report is ready for review. This is the last step in the incident simulation!
