Amazon EventBridge is a serverless event bus that makes it easier to build event-driven applications at scale using events generated from your applications, integrated Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications, and AWS services.
Route detailed alerts from Amazon EventBridge to the right users in Squadcast.
Using Amazon EventBridge as an Alert Source
(1) From the navigation bar on the left, select Services. Pick the applicable Team from the Team-picker on the top. Next, click on Alert Sources for the applicable Service
(2) Search for Amazon EventBridge from the Alert Source drop-down and copy the Webhook URL
For an Alert Source to turn active (indicated by a green dot - Receiving alerts against the name of the Alert Source in the drop-down), you can either generate a test alert or wait for a real-time alert to be generated by the Alert Source.
An Alert Source is active if there is a recorded incident via that Alert Source for the Service in the last 30 days.
Create a Squadcast Webhook Connection in Amazon EventBridge
(1) Login to your Amazon EventBridge dashboard. Head over to the API destinations tab and click on Connections. Then click on Create connection
(2) Fill in the Connection name, select API Key as Authorization type. Enter Squadcast as API key name and true as Value. Then click on Create
(3) Switch the API destinations and click on Create API destination
(4) Fill in the Name and paste the previously copied Squadcast Webhook URL in the placeholder for API destination endpoint. Select POST as HTTP method and under Connection, choose the previously created connection. Then click on Create
You can now mention your newly created API destination as target under Rules.
That’s it, you are good to go! Your Amazon EventBridge integration is now complete. Whenever Amazon EventBridge fires an alert, an incident will be created in Squadcast for it.
