Steps to configure LibreNMS integration for incident management, using Squadcast.

LibreNMS is an auto-discovering PHP/MySQL-based network monitoring system.

Route detailed monitoring alerts from LibreNMS to the right users in Squadcast.

How to integrate LibreNMS with Squadcast

In Squadcast: Using LibreNMS 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 LibreNMS. Copy the displayed Webhook URL to configure it within LibreNMS. 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.

In LibreNMS: Add a Squadcast Webhook

(1) From the home page, click on the Alerts tab on the top

(2) Select Alert Transports

(3) Click on Create alert transport

(4) Next:

  • Give the Alert Transport a Name

  • Choose Transport type as Api

  • Default alert is toggled to ON

  • Choose API Method as POST

  • In the placeholder for API URL, paste the copied Webhook from Squadcast

  • In Options, add the template below as is:

device_id={{ $device_id }}
hostname= {{ $hostname }}
sysName={{ $sysName }}
sysDescr={{ $sysDescr }}
sysContact={{ $sysContact }}
os={{ $os }}
type={{ $type }}
ip={{ $ip }}
hardware={{ $hardware }}
version={{ $version }}
features={{ $features }}
serial={{ $serial }}
location={{ $location }}
uptime={{ $uptime }}
uptime_short={{ $uptime_short }}
uptime_long={{ $uptime_long }}
description={{ $description }}
notes={{ $notes }}
alert_notes={{ $alert_notes }}
ping_timestamp={{ $ping_timestamp }}
ping_loss={{ $ping_loss }}
ping_min={{ $ping_min }}
ping_max={{ $ping_max }}
ping_avg={{ $ping_avg }}
title={{ $title }}
elapsed={{ $elapsed }}
builder={{ $builder }}
id={{ $id }}
uid={{ $uid }}
state={{ $state }}
severity={{ $severity }}
rule={{ $rule }}
name={{ $name }} 
proc={{ $proc }} 
timestamp={{ $timestamp }} 
transport={{ $transport }} 
transport_name={{ $transport_name }}
  • Click on Save Transport

(5) Once your Alert Transport has been created, click on the Alerts tab on the top and select Alert Rules

(6) You can either Add alert rule or modify an existing one. Choose the Alert Rule for which Squadcast Webhook should be triggered.

Here, in Transports:

  • Select the Squadcast Webhook that was previously created

  • Enable the toggle for Recovery Alerts to ON

  • Click on Save Rule

(7) Back in the Alert Rule dashboard, you can verify the rules for which Squadcast Webhook is added as a Transport

That is it, your integration with LibreNMS is complete and you are good to go!

Now, every time there is an alert in LibreNMS, the alert will be sent to Squadcast and an incident will be triggered, notifying the right people. Similarly, when the alert gets resolved in LibreNMS, the corresponding incident will get auto-resolved in Squadcast as well.
