Integrate Opsgenie with Lightstep

Lightstep logo

What does Opsgenie offer Lightstep users?

Use Opsgenie’s Lightstep Integration to forward Lightstep notifications to Opsgenie. Opsgenie determines the right people to notify based on on-call schedules– notifies via email, text messages (SMS), phone calls, iOS and Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed.

Functionality of the integration

Lightstep sends JSON notifications when a Service-Level Alert (SLA) is violated or resolved, which creates an alert in Opsgenie.

Add Lightstep Integration in Opsgenie

  1. Go to Settings → Integrations. Search for Lightstep and select Add

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 Lightstep notifications using the Responders field. Autocomplete suggestions are provided as you type.
