PagerDuty is an incident management and alerting system. PagerDuty collects alerts from various monitoring systems, and notifies the appropriate team members based on your on-call duty schedule and escalation policies. AlertSite UXM can send alerts directly to PagerDuty to automatically trigger and resolve incidents.
PagerDuty integration is available to AlertSite Enterprise users.
To configure the integration, you need the following user permissions:
First, you need to create an AlertSite UXM service in PagerDuty:
In your PagerDuty account, go to Configuration > Services.
Click Add New Service.
Under Integration Type, select AlertSite UXM from the list of tools. Type AlertSite into the filter box to find it faster.
Now you can add a PagerDuty recipient in AlertSite:
In the dialog that opens, click New Recipient.
Click Alert with PagerDuty.
You will be redirected to the PagerDuty website. Enter your PagerDuty email and password, and click Authorize Integration.
Select Use an existing AlertSite UXM service, then select the service that you created earlier.
You will be redirected back to AlertSite, and a dialog will show the service name and key:
PagerDuty is now available as an alert recipient in AlertSite:
PagerDuty is also added to your global recipient list in Alerts > Alert Recipients, and you can reconfigure it from there.
Note: By default, all AlertSite monitors send alerts to all configured alert recipients. But if you have recipient groups configured, each group’s monitors send alerts only to recipients in that group. In this case you need to add the PagerDuty recipient to the relevant groups to receive alerts from monitors in that group.
You should see that an incident has been triggered by AlertSite:
Click the incident number # to open the incident details. The problem description is in the status_text field in the Details table. For a description of other fields, see Alert Data Fields.
Will PagerDuty incidents automatically resolve when AlertSite sends a “clear” notification?
Can I integrate AlertSite with more than one PagerDuty service?
Yes. This way you can use different PagerDuty escalation policies for different AlertSite monitors.
You need to create several AlertSite services with different names in PagerDuty, and the corresponding PagerDuty recipients in AlertSite.
