Follow the steps below to configure a service so as to push related alert data from Sysdig Monitor onto Squadcast.
Squadcast will then process this information to create incidents for this service as per your preferences.
Using Sysdig Monitor 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 Sysdig Monitor 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.

To add a new notification channel:
1.Log in to Sysdig Monitor as administrator and select Settings.
2.Select Notification Channels.
The Notifications main page is displayed:
3.Add a notification channel with the + button and select Webhook.
4.Enter the Webhook channel configuration options:
URL: Enter the Webhook URL you copied from Squadcast dashboard
Channel Name: Add a meaningful name, such as “Squadcast”, “Squadcast Notification” etc
Enabled: Toggle on
Notify when Resolved: Toggle on
Notify when Acknowledged: **Toggle off **
