IssueDoes the notify call affect future risk scores for an end user?
ResolutionYes, the notify call has an affect on future risk scores generated by the user. According to the AA Hosted Back Office documentation:
'The Notify method allows your application to notify Adaptive Authentication of any
application events of significant value that can be used by Adaptive Authentication to
update its profiles. This method does not usually return any response values with any
significant information, instead it provides the Risk Engine with information for
additional profiling to improve future risk assessment.'

So future risk scores will have been impacted by the data that is sent in with the notify call. The major difference from an analyze call is that the notify call does not return a risk score.
