Configure Opsgenie Edge Connector

Environment Variables

Prerequisites
For setting configuration file properties such as location and path:

  • First, you should set some environment variables for the locate configuration file.
    There are two options here, you can get the configuration file from a local drive or by using git.

For reading configuration files from a local drive:

  • Set OEC_CONF_SOURCE_TYPE and OEC_CONF_LOCAL_FILEPATH variables.

For Redhat 6 / Centos 6 edit the /etc/init.d/oec file add these 2 export commands just before the "start()" function:

/etc/init.d/oec

1 2 3 4 export OEC_CONF_SOURCE_TYPE="local" export OEC_CONF_LOCAL_FILEPATH="/home/opsgenie/oec/config.json" start().......

For Redhat 7 / Centos 7 and Debian / Ubuntu edit the /etc/systemd/system/oec.service file, inside the [Service] key add the following "Environment" properties just before the start of the [install] key:

/etc/systemd/system/oec.service

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 ... [Service] ... ... Environment="OEC_CONF_SOURCE_TYPE=local" Environment="OEC_CONF_LOCAL_FILEPATH=~/oec/config.json" ... [Install]

For Windows Sytems edit the oecService<32 | 64>.json file provided in the zip file you downloaded when you followed the instructions on our "Installation" page. The JSON contains a key called "Env" it takes an array as its value, lists the "OEC_CONF_LOCAL_FILEPATH" and "OEC_CONF_SOURCE_TYPE" with their values within the "Env" key's array.

JSON

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 ... ... "Env": [ "OEC_CONF_LOCAL_FILEPATH=C:\\opsgenie\\oec-win64\\config.json", "OEC_CONF_SOURCE_TYPE=local" ], ... ...

From reading configuration files from a git repository:

  • Set OEC_CONF_GIT_URLOEC_CONF_GIT_FILEPATHOEC_CONF_GIT_PRIVATE_KEY_FILEPATH, and OEC_CONF_GIT_PASSPHRASE variables.

If you are using a public repository, you should use an https format of a git url and you do not need to set private key and passphrase.

  • You can set OEC_API_KEY variable (optional), if this property is set in the environment its value will be used as apiKey otherwise apiKey from configuration file (mentioned below) will be used.

Key

Value Properties

Example

OEC_CONF_SOURCE_TYPE

git → For getting from git

local → For getting from local environment

OEC_CONF_SOURCE_TYPE=git
or
OEC_CONF_SOURCE_TYPE=local

OEC_CONF_LOCAL_FILEPATH

filepath with extension (.yaml, .yml or .json)
Default: ~/oec/config.json

OEC_CONF_LOCAL_FILEPATH=/home/Opsgenie/OECConfig.yaml
or
OEC_CONF_LOCAL_FILEPATH=~/OECConfig.json

OEC_CONF_GIT_URL

HTTPS or SSH url of the git repository

OEC_CONF_GIT_URL=git@bitbucket.com:metehan/test-private-conf-cem.git
or
OEC_CONF_GIT_URL=https://bitbucket.org/metehan_ozturk/test-conf-cem.git

OEC_CONF_GIT_FILEPATH

filepath in the git repository folder (.yaml, .yml or .json)

OEC_CONF_GIT_FILEPATH=~/oec/config.json

OEC_CONF_GIT_PRIVATE_KEY_FILEPATH

git ssh key location in local drive

OEC_CONF_GIT_PRIVATE_KEY_FILEPATH=~/.ssh/id_rsa

OEC_CONF_GIT_PASSPHRASE

ssh passphrase

OEC_CONF_GIT_PASSPHRASE=1234

OEC_LOG_FORMAT_TYPE

text → logrus text type logs
json → logrus json type logs
colored → colored logrus type logs (default)

OEC_LOG_FORMAT_TYPE=text

OEC_API_KEY

API key from Opsgenie’s OEC Integration page, if this property is set it will override apiKey provided in configuration file.

OEC_API_KEY=4XXXXXX7-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-9XXXXXXXXXX4

‘~’ character can be used as home directory for running the program as a user in customer’s server.

Flag

Prometheus default metrics can be grabbed from 

http://localhost:<port-number>/metrics

  • To run multiple OEC in the same environment, -oec-metrics flag should be set as distinct port number values.
    -oec-metrics <port-number>

 

Logs

OEC log file is located:

  • On Windows: var/log/opsgenie/oec<pid>.log

  • On Linux: /var/log/opsgenie/oec<pid>.log

  • At the end of the file name of the log, there is program identifier (pid) to identify which process is running.

 

Configuration File

OEC supports json and yaml file extension with fields. Configuration filepath should be set on 

OEC_CONF_LOCAL_FILEPATH

 or 

OEC_CONF_GIT_FILEPATH

according to local or git choice.

 

 

Field

Type

Mandatory

Description

apiKey

string

true

The API key which is copied from Opsgenie’s OEC Integration page

baseUrl

string

false

The API url of the Opsgenie mirror

globalArgs

list of string

false

Execute arguments that applies to all actions

globalFlags

map of string key-value

false

Execute flags that applies to all actions
Map field consists flag keys and values.
Given flags might enforce to be parsed in action script or executable.

globalEnv

list of string

false

Each element indicates one environment variable name and value separated with ‘=’ character. Applies to all actions. (e.g., “ENV1=value”)

actionMappings

map of string key and mappedAction value

true

Map of the alert action mappings
Each mapping has an action name(string) as a key which is defined in Opsgenie (e.g., Create).
At least one action should be existed.

actionMappings → mappedAction

map

true

Each mappedAction represents an action and includes an action properties sourceType, filepath, gitOptions and environmentVariables.

actionMappings → mappedAction → sourceType

stderr filepath of action

actionMappings → mappedAction → args

Map field consists flag keys and values.
Given flags might enforce to be parsed in action script or executable.

actionMappings → mappedAction → env

list of strings

This field includes all three string properties,
which are
url (git repository url),
privateKeyFilePath (ssh key file),
passphrase (if any).
Properties are same git variables at which Environment Variables section.
* If soruceType is “git”, gitOptions should be set.

actionMappings → mappedAction → gitOptions → url

string

true for git source

HTTPS or SSH url of the git repository of the mappedAction

actionMappings → mappedAction → gitOptions → privateKeyFilepath

string

Passphrase of the git repository of the mappedAction (if needed)

pollerConf

map

false

The field gets all three integer properties specifying behavior of the poller that poll the sqs queue of OEC.

pollerConf → pollingWaitIntervalInMillis

integer

false

The wait period of the poller when there is no new message in the queue or free job worker
Default: 100 (milliseconds)
Small values of this field (e.g., <100ms.) might cause high cpu usage.

pollerConf → visibilityTimeoutInSeconds

integer

false

The visibility timeout of messages that are polled from sqs queue
* Default: 30 (seconds)

pollerConf → maxNumberOfMessages

integer

false

Maximum number of messages that are received at a time

The field gets all five integer properties specifying
behaviour of the worker pool that manages workers (go routines)

poolConf → maxNumberOfWorker

integer

false

Maximum number of worker processing action
Default: 12
Cpu bound processes may not need higher values of maxNumberOfWorker.
* Higher values of maxNumberOfWorker may be meaningful for I/O bound processes.

poolConf → minNumberOfWorker

integer

false

Minimum number of worker processing action
Default: 4
When there is not much active process, minNumberOfWorker determines the lower limit of idle worker number.

poolConf → queueSize

integer

false

Internal queue size of messages that are received from sqs queue
Default: 0
When all workers are busy, messages can be stored in internal queue.
* Enabling queue size is not recommended and may cause data loss if any program crash.

poolConf → keepAliveTimeInMillis

integer

false

* Default: 6000 (milliseconds)

poolConf → monitoringPeriodInMillis

integer

false

Monitoring interval to record pool metrics
* Default: 15000 (milliseconds)

 

Local variable of args, flags and env overrides global ones.

  • apiKeyopsgenieUrl (baseUrl) and payload (OEC callback as JSON) passes to args as flag format. These flags should be parsed in action scripts or executables.

  • Payload consists alert info and integration specific params. Integration-specific params will exist for “send via OEC” option.

  • OEC updates git repositories periodically every 1 minute.

OEC integration uses directly actual actions (e.g. CreateCloseAcknowledge, etc.), other integrations will use primarily "mappedAction" related with themselves (e.g. addCommentToIssuecreateIssue, etc. for Jira integration).
