How to integrate LogicMonitor with Squadcast

In Squadcast: Using LogicMonitor as an Alert Source

  1. 1.
    Navigate to Services -> Service Overview -> select or search for your Service. Expand the accordion -> In the Alert Sources section, click Add.
2. Select LogicMonitor. Copy the displayed Webhook URL to configure it within LogicMonitor. Finish by clicking Add Alert Source -> Done.
Important:
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 LogicMonitor: Add a webhook for Squadcast

(1) From the dashboard, navigate to Settings
(2) Select Integrations from the sidebar
(3) Select Add to add the new endpoint
(4) Select Custom HTTP Delivery since we want to configure a custom webhook
  • Give the integration a meaningul Name, such as, Squadcast Webhook
  • Provide an optional Description
  • You can either choose to Use the same URL and data to notify on various alert activity (one single Squadcast Service webhook) or Use differents URLs or data formats to notify on various alert activity (multiple Squadcast Services webhooks). Either of the options you choose, you can follow the steps below, as many times as required (per each webhook)
  • Choose Cleared checkbox since this will enable auto-resolution for incidents in Squadcast
  • HTTP Method: From the drop-down, choose HTTP Post. Do not enable/use Custom Headers
  • In the URL field, first select https:// from the drop-down on the left and paste the copied Squadcast webhook by removing the https:// prefix from the URL
  • Provide Username and Password if applicable
  • Within Alert Data, paste the following template:
service=##SERVICE##&alertid=##ALERTID##&alerttype=##ALERTTYPE##&alertstatus=##ALERTSTATUS##&level=##LEVEL##&host=##HOST##&datasource=##DATASOURCE##&eventsource=##EVENTSOURCE##&batchjob=##BATCHJOB##&group=##GROUP##&datapoint=##DATAPOINT##&start=##START##&finish=##FINISH##&duration=##DURATION##&value=##VALUE##&threshold=##THRESHOLD##&userdata=##USERDATA##&cmdline=##CMDLINE##&exitCode=##EXITCODE##&stdout=##STDOUT##&stderr=##STDERR##&agent=##AGENT_DESCRIPTION##&checkpoint=##CHECKPOINT##&datapointdesc=##DPDESCRIPTION##&hostdesc=##HOSTDESCRIPTION##&hostinfo=##system.sysinfo##&hostips=##system.ips##&hosturl=##DEVICEURL##&instance=##INSTANCE##&dsidesc=##DSIDESCRIPTION##&batchdesc=##BJDESCRIPTION##&hostname=##system.hostname##&dsdesc=##DSDESCRIPTION##&eventmsg=##LIMITEDMESSAGE##&eventlogmsg=##MESSAGE##&eventcode=##EVENTCODE##&eventtype=##TYPE##&eventuser=##USER##&eventlogfile=##LOGFILE##&servicedetail=##DETAIL##&serviceurl=##URL##&servicegroup=##SERVICEGROUP##&date=##DATE##&clearvalue=##CLEARVALUE##&internalid=##INTERNALID##&alerturl=##ALERTDETAILURL##
{{site.data.alerts.blue-note-md}} Note: Custom User Defined Variables

Replace the ##Name## & ##Value## with proper values and add at the end of the variables mentioned in Step 4. This is how it would look like :
service=##SERVICE##&alertid=##ALERTID##&alerttype=##ALERTTYPE##&alertstatus=##ALERTSTATUS##&level=##LEVEL##&host=##HOST##&datasource=##DATASOURCE##&eventsource=##EVENTSOURCE##&batchjob=##BATCHJOB##&group=##GROUP##&datapoint=##DATAPOINT##&start=##START##&finish=##FINISH##&duration=##DURATION##&value=##VALUE##&threshold=##THRESHOLD##&userdata=##USERDATA##&cmdline=##CMDLINE##&exitCode=##EXITCODE##&stdout=##STDOUT##&stderr=##STDERR##&agent=##AGENT_DESCRIPTION##&checkpoint=##CHECKPOINT##&datapointdesc=##DPDESCRIPTION##&hostdesc=##HOSTDESCRIPTION##&hostinfo=##system.sysinfo##&hostips=##system.ips##&hosturl=##DEVICEURL##&instance=##INSTANCE##&dsidesc=##DSIDESCRIPTION##&batchdesc=##BJDESCRIPTION##&hostname=##system.hostname##&dsdesc=##DSDESCRIPTION##&eventmsg=##LIMITEDMESSAGE##&eventlogmsg=##MESSAGE##&eventcode=##EVENTCODE##&eventtype=##TYPE##&eventuser=##USER##&eventlogfile=##LOGFILE##&servicedetail=##DETAIL##&serviceurl=##URL##&servicegroup=##SERVICEGROUP##&date=##DATE##&clearvalue=##CLEARVALUE##&internalid=##INTERNALID##&alerturl=##ALERTDETAILURL##&CustomVariable1Name=##Name##&CustomVariable1Value=##Value##&CustomVariable2Name=##Name##&CustomVariable2Value=##Value##
