Integrate Opsgenie with Scalyr

Scalyr logo

What does Opsgenie offer Scalyr users?

Opsgenie has a specific API integration with Scalyr. Scalyr sends alert notification messages to Opsgenie API, with detailed information. Opsgenie acts as a dispatcher for Scalyr alerts, determines the right people to notify based on on-call schedules– notifies via email, text messages (SMS), phone calls, and iPhone & Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed.

Functionality of the integration

  • When an alert is created in Scalyr, an alert is created in Opsgenie.

  • When an alert is closed in the Scalyr, the alert is closed in Opsgenie.
