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 t be generated by the Alert Source.
An Alert Source is active if there is a recorded incident via that Alert Source for the Service.

5. Now, associate this integration with any of your checks on Pingdom.
Here, we have simply associated this Webhook integration with one of Pingdom's Uptime Checks.
Important:
Please check the Alert when back up checkbox. If this is not done, the corresponding incident in Squadcast will not get auto-resolved when an alert recovers in Pingdom.

Test Alerts from Pingdom
To check if the configured Webhook integration is functioning as expected, within your Checks, you have the option to do so. 1. Against the configured Squadcast Webhook, click on Test. This generates a test alert to Squadcast.
2. In Squadcast, you will be able to see the test incident created by this alert from Pingdom in the Incident Dashboard or the Incident List.
This will confirm that the integration is working fine.
3. You will have to manually resolve this incident in Squadcast.
That is it, you are good to go!
  • Every time an alert is created in Pingdom, an incident would be created in Squadcast.
  • When the alert is resolved (changes state to Up or Success) in Pingdom, the corresponding incident in Squadcast will be automatically resolved.
