Thank you for this. I have been pulling my hair out for days trying to figure out why notifications were not displaying when both Desktop Notifications and HIPS blocking verbosity were set to Warning. Once I dropped desktop notifications to informative they started functioning properly. This is definitely a bug.
Reported this bug to Eset:
Details: My custom HIPS rules are set to "Notify User" and Logging Severity set to Warning. Under Desktop Notifications, Minimum Verbosity of events to display - It is also Set to "Warning".
Bug: No desktop notifications appear when a HIPS rule is triggered.
But they should appear because "Desktop Notifications, Minimum Verbosity" is set to Warning AND the HIPS rule is also set to Warning.
Note: If Desktop Notifications, Minimum Verbosity is set to Informative, HIPS notifications appear.
See Attached Screenshots and Forum post with all the details of this bug: https://forum.eset.com/topic/28730-hips-notify-user-not-working/
Thanks for your reply. The notifications should display when minimum verbosity is set to Warning as I explained. I have no desire to set it to Diagnostic or Informative as a workaround. I hope Eset fixes it.
