Is there a way to disable new notifications from lighting up my locked phone's screen

Android Central Question

I have a Sony Xperia XA1, running Android 8.0.0.

When my phone is locked, the screen is black. If I receive some notification, the screen "wakes" to display the notification. I am wondering if there is some way to disable this.

I found in
Settings -> Lock Screen & Security -> Lock Screen Preferences
that I can choose not to show any notifications at all, but that's not exactly what I'm looking for. When the screen is black, and I press the power button, the screen "wakes" to a point where the clock is displayed as well as any not-yet-dismissed notifications. I like this feature. I like to be able to quickly press the power button to see notifications. I'd simply like to disallow new notifications from independently "waking" the screen from its plain black state.

I can go to Settings -> Display
but there is no "Advanced" option, and I don't see anything about ambient display settings.

Please see attached screenshots to disable all notifications from the lock screen. I don't get any notifications on my lockscreen and my phone light stays off.

Also, if you just don't want notification lights, shut thru App's & Notifications, All Apps, then by individual App open and tap on App Notifications to shut off notification light per individual App.
