What does the integration offer?

Jira Service Management has a webhook integration with AlertSite UXM. Use the integration to send AlertSite UXM incidents to Jira Service Management's API with detailed information. Jira Service Management acts as a dispatcher for AlertSite UXM alerts, determines the right people to notify based on on-call schedules– notifies via email, text messages (SMS), phone calls and iPhone & Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed.

How does the integration work?

  • When an availability or performance alert is created in AlertSite UXM, an alert is created in Jira Service Management automatically through the integration.

  • When the status of the alert is sent to Jira Service Management as "0", related alert is also closed in Jira Service Management.

Set up the integration

AlertSite UXM is an API-based integration. Setting it up involves the following steps:

  • Add an AlertSite UXM integration in Jira Service Management

  • Configure the integration in AlertSite UXM

Add an AlertSite UXM integration

If you're using the Free or Standard plan in Jira Service Management, you can only add this integration from your team’s operations page. To access the feature through Settings (gear icon) > Products (under JIRA SETTINGS) > OPERATIONS, you need to be on Premium or Enterprise plan.

Adding an integration from your team’s operations page makes your team the owner of the integration. This means Jira Service Management only assigns the alerts received through this integration to your team.

To add an AlertSite UXM integration in Jira Service Management, complete the following steps:

  1. Go to your team’s operations page.

  2. On the left navigation panel, select Integrations and then Add integration.

  3. Run a search and select “AlertSite UXM”.

  4. On the next screen, enter a name for the integration.

  5. Optional: Select a team in Assignee team if you want a specific team to receive alerts from the integration.

  6. Select Continue.
    The integration is saved at this point.

  7. Expand the Steps to configure the integration section and copy the endpoint URL.
    You will use this URL while configuring the integration in AlertSite UXM later.

  8. Select Turn on integration.
    The rules you create for the integration will work only if you turn on the integration.
