Integrate Opsgenie with Nagios XI Email

By default Nagios XI is configured to send email notifications. To send Nagios notifications to Opsgenie via email, you need a correctly configured UNIX based email sending tool (mailx, sendmail, etc.). View the email notification commands in the Commands section at Core Config Manager of your Nagios XI installation's web interface.


Note that the instructions may need to be adjusted depending on your exact Linux distribution and your Nagios XI configuration.

In Opsgenie

  1. Go to Settings → Integrations. Search for Email and select Add. An email integration creates Opsgenie alerts for every email sent to specified email address.

  2. You should copy the email address of Email Integration to use it in Nagios XI contact definition.
