When an alert is created in , an alerted is automatically created in through the integration.
Configuring Rackspace Webhook integration
supports email and webhook notification types. Although alerts can be sent via Email, provides a webhook API for Cloud Monitoring to create alerts directly in data centers. The steps below describe how to integrate and using webhook notifications:
Create an Opsgenie API Integration, copy the integration apiKey, and update the account's "webhook_token" property.
Create a web hook notification in Cloud Monitoring using https://api.opsgenie.com/v1/json/rackspace URL provided by API, and use this notification in your notification plans. Specify the users and/or group of users (comma separated) who are notified by using the "recipients" URL parameter. If not provided, all users are notified.
That's all. Now receive alerts as SMS, phone calls, iPhone or Android push notifications thanks to powerful alerting system.
Let's demonstrate the integration with the following simple scenario:
Create an entity in Cloud Monitoring for a web server running on port 8080.
Then create an http check
Create webhook notification
Create a notification plan using web hook notification
and finally create an alarm with a notification plan, for HTTP error codes coming from a web server.
When the web server is shut down, Cloud Monitoring detects the failure and creates an alert like the following:
