Integrate Opsgenie with Kapacitor

What does Opsgenie offer Kapacitor users?

Use Opsgenie Kapacitor integration to send Kapacitor events to Opsgenie with detailed information. Opsgenie acts as a dispatcher for Kapacitor events, determines the right people to notify based on on-call schedules– notifies via email, text messages (SMS), phone calls, and iOS & Android push notifications, and escalating alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed.

Functionality of the integration

  • When an event is created on Kapacitor, an alert is created in Opsgenie automatically through the integration.
