How to integrate ManageEngine Application Manager with Squadcast

In Squadcast: Using ManageEngine Application Manager 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 ManageEngine Application Manager. Copy the displayed Webhook URL to configure it within ManageEngine Application Manager. 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 ManageEngine Application Manager: Create a Squadcast Webhook


You can configure a webhook for either a Group or a Project.

(1) Navigate to Admin > Alarm/Action > Actions

(2) Select the RestAPI Action option from the Actions menu

(3) Enter the Display Name for the action. Paste the previously copied Squadcast Webhook URL and choose the Form Submission Method as POST

(4) Choose the PayLoad Type to send data requests through as JSON and paste the below JSON in the placeholder for Custom Parameters

    "HOSTIP" : "$HOSTIP",
    "PORT" : "$PORT",
    "DATE" : "$DATE",
    "OID" : "$OID",
    "URL" : "$URL",
    "Label" : "$Label",
    "Configuration" : "$Configuration",
    "Department" : "$Department",
    "Description" : "$Description",
    "Location" : "$Location",
    "User" : "$User",
    "ENTITY" : "$ENTITY",

(5) Click the Create Action button to finish creating the Webhook action


Understanding how the integration works:

  • Trigger a new incident: For the values severity: critical, severity: down, severity: warning in the alert payload, an incident is triggered in Squadcast.

  • Resolve an existing incident: For the values severity: clear and severity: up, incidents are resolved in Squadcast (pertaining to auto-resolution of an existing, open incident)

Please ensure that the right severity is being sent within the payload for the alerts into Squadcast. If values other than the ones mentioned above are sent for severity, the integration will not work as expected.

In case of any queries, please feel free to reach out to our Support team.

That's it, you are good to go! Your ManageEngine Application Manager integration is now complete.

Now, whenever ManageEngine Application Manager fires an alert, an incident will be created in Squadcast for it. When the alert recovers in ManageEngine Application Manager, the corresponding incident will automatically get resolved in Squadcast as well.
