Send alerts to Squadcast from Honeycomb

Honeycomb is an application monitoring tool that helps DevOps and SRE teams to operate more efficiently by offering rich observability and intuitive team collaboration.

Route detailed alerts from Honeycomb to the right users in Squadcast.

Using Honeycomb 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.

2. Select Honeycomb. Copy the displayed Webhook URL to configure it within Honeycomb. 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.
