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.

Add Kapacitor integration in Opsgenie

  1. Go to Opsgenie Kapacitor Integration page.

Under the Free and Essentials plans, the tabs under the Team dashboard are limited to Main, Integrations, Members, and Activity Stream.

2. Specify who is notified of Kapacitor alerts using the Teams field. Auto-complete suggestions are provided as you type.

An alternative for Step 1) and Step 2) is to add the integration from the Team Dashboard of the team which will own the integration. To add an integration directly to a team, navigate to the Team Dashboard and open Integrations tab. Click Add Integration and select the integration that you would like to add.

3. Copy the API Key.

4. Click Save Integration.
