Follow the steps below to configure a service so as to extract its related alert data from Pingdom. Squadcast will then process this information to create incidents for this service as per your preferences.
Using Pingdom as an Alert Source
On the Sidebar, click on Services.
You can either choose to use existing service or create a new service
Now, click on the corresponding Alert Sources button.
Select Pingdomr from Alert Source drop down and copy the Webhook URL shown.
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 in Pingdom
Now login to your Pingdom account.
Click on Integrations to go to the Integrations page.
Click on “Add Integration” and in the subsequent dialog box select type as “Webhook” and provide an appropriate name for the integration. Enter the URL obtained earlier and tick the “Active Checkbox”. Finally click on “Save Integration” button.
Now you can connect this integration to any of yours checks on Pingdom.
That’s it! Your Pingdom integration is now good to go.
Once a check gets UP or SUCCESS from Pingdom it will automatically be resolved inside Squadcast.
