Why should you migrate to Opsgenie Edge Connector (OEC)

Marid, has provided secure access by resolving challenges faced while integrating internal and external systems. However, in order to give the best experience and to meet the improved capacities we're replacing Marid with OEC. OEC provides more secure access, flexibility, lower costs, and enhanced technology.

Just like Marid, OEC communicates with Opsgenie without requiring inbound connections through your firewall.

It's also just as secure, being compatible with proxy servers and industry-standard HTTPS/TLS Encryption. Here are some other advantages of OEC;

  • In case if they’re installed on the environment, OEC can utilize scripts in any language listed below,:
    Groovy scripts(.groovy)
    Python scripts(.py)
    Go scripts(.go)
    Powershell scripts(. ps1)
    Shell scripts(.sh)
    Batch files(.cmd and .bat)

  • OEC reduces system overhead and maintenance costs by eliminating the requirement of installing agents on every monitoring server to send Opsgenie actions back to internal systems.

  • OEC doesn't need a Java environment; therefore, it doesn't execute groovy scripts like Marid does.

  • Default Groovy scripts for integrations written for Marid are replaced with Python scripts for OEC.

Getting started with the migration

Before migrating, we highly recommend reading our guide to OEC installations steps and follow the links below to understand the correct migration process for your environment.

We’ll continue our uninterrupted support until Marid's fully retired. When you’re ready, remove Marid from your environment, download OEC, and start using OEC instead of Marid.

Feel free to contact the support team if you need help during this process.

If you’re using an integration that includes Marid, (eg: Nagios, Jira, Zabbix…etc.) make sure to download its OEC packages separately.
