Integrate Opsgenie with Stackdriver

Stackdriver logo

Stackdriver's goal is to help Dev and Ops teams manage large, distributed applications running in the public cloud. It visualizes applications, systems, and infrastructure metrics. Also, Stackdriver provides a policy system to alert users when predefined thresholds are breached.

What does Opsgenie offer Stackdriver users?

Use Opsgenie’s Stackdriver Integration to forward Stackdriver incidents to Opsgenie, and Opsgenie alerts to Stackdriver. Opsgenie 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 you create an incident in Stackdriver, it creates an alert in Opsgenie.

  • When you acknowledge an incident in Stackdriver, the alert is acknowledged in Opsgenie.

  • When you close an incident in Stackdriver, the alert is closed in Opsgenie.

  • When you acknowledge an alert in Opsgenie, the incident is acknowledged in Stackdriver.

  • When you close an alert in Opsgenie, the incident is closed in Stackdriver.

Add Stackdriver Integration in Opsgenie

  1. Go to Opsgenie's Stackdriver Integration page.

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 Stackdriver alerts using the Teams field. Autocomplete suggestions are provided as you type.
