Integrate Opsgenie with SignalFx

What does Opsgenie offer SignalFx users?

SignalFx detectors monitor signals and send alerts when they cross defined thresholds. With the SignalFx Integration, Opsgenie acts as a dispatcher for these alerts, determines the right people to notify based on on-call schedules– notifies them using email, text messages (SMS), phone calls, and iPhone & Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed.

Opsgenie has a specific API for SignalFx Integration, SignalFx sends alerts to Opsgenie and Opsgenie handles the automatic creation of alerts.

Functionality of the integration

  • SignalFx detectors monitor signals and send alerts when they cross defined thresholds. When an alert is created in SignalFx, an alert is also created in Opsgenie automatically through the integration.

  • When values are back to normal, SignalFx detectors resolve the alert. When an alert is resolved in SignalFx, an alert is also closed in Opsgenie.

Add SignalFx Integration in Opsgenie

  1. Go to Settings → Integrations. Search for SignalFx 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 SignalFx alerts using the Responders field. Auto-complete suggestions are provided as you type.

Did you know that you can also add this integration from your team dashboard? 

If you want your team to be the owner of this integration, add it from your team dashboard. Opsgenie will assign the alerts received through this integration to your team only.

  1. Go to Teams,

  2. Find your team and select it to go to your team dashboard,

  3. From your team navigation, select Integrations,

  4. Select Add integration.

Add an Opsgenie notification to a detector

  1. Create, edit, or subscribe to a detector that you want to send notifications to Opsgenie. Click Add recipient, select Opsgenie, then select the integration name that specifies where the notifications should be sent.

  2. If you select an integration associated with a particular team (see Add a SignalFx integration to a single Opsgenie team), notifications will be sent to that team. If you select an integration that can send notifications to multiple teams (see Add a SignalFx integration to multiple Opsgenie teams), you have two options:

  • Select a team to send the notification to a particular team instead of having Opsgenie determine how to handle the notification.

  • Select “No team” to indicate that Opsgenie should handle the notification based on settings you specified for the integration associated with the API key.
