The notification bar is used for global notifications, concerning the whole environment or account.

Notification bar example

The bar can show

  • messages, e.g. "A new security gateway is available for you."
  • incidents and alerts, e.g. "Your account is about to expire."

The messages may contain links that allow users to perform related actions directly. The nested button allows to dismiss a notification. There can be multiple layers of notification bars, the most recent will appear on top.


Use a white notification bar for an informational message.
