Blue Matador

Send alerts to Squadcast from Blue Matador

Blue Matador is the fastest, easiest way to set up AWS infrastructure monitoring, allowing small teams to fully monitor their cloud with no manual setup.

Route alerts from Blue Matador to the right users in Squadcast.

Using Blue Matador as an Alert Source

  1. Navigate to Services -> Service Overview -> select or search for your Service. Expand the accordion -> In the Alert Sources section, click Add.

  1. Select Blue Matador. Copy the displayed Webhook URL to configure it within Blue Matador. Finish by clicking Add Alert Source -> Done.


When an alert source turns Active, it’ll show up under Configured Alert Sources. You can either generate a test alert from the integration 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.

Create a Squadcast Webhook Alert in Blue Matador

(1) Login to your Blue Matador dashboard and after your initial configuration, navigate to the SETUP section. Under Available Notification Integrations, click on Connect button for the Squadcast integration

(2) Under the Squadcast integration, put in the Integration Name and select Alerts & Warnings you would want to send to Squadcast. Paste the previously copied Squadcast Webhook URL in the placeholder for Webhook. Then click on Save

That's it, you are good to go! Your Blue Matador integration is now complete.

Whenever Blue Matador fires an alert or warning, an incident will be created in Squadcast for it. Once the tool sends an Resolve alert, it will automatically be resolved in Squadcast as well.
