Clarification of Mitigating Alerts and Notifications


I am investigating mitigating controls in 5.2 and have a query regarding the difference between 'generate action log' and 'alert notifications'. In the configuration tab when maintaining background jobs for mit controls there are the above 2 options. None of the supporting documents clearly explain the difference between these. They're obviously both emails. I expect one advises that mitigating control is due to be executed (alert notificiation). That leaves 'generate action log' which seems to have something to do with capturing transactional data from R3. Can anybody clarify how these are used?

Many thanks in advance
