Effortlessly configure SignalFx integration for streamlined incident management with Squadcast. Comprehensive guide for optimized incident response. Explore now.

Follow the steps below to configure a service so as to extract its related alert data from SignalFx.

Squadcast will then process this information to create incidents for this service as per your preferences.

Using SignalFx 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 SignalFx. Copy the displayed Webhook URL to configure it within SignalFx. 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.

Setup alerts to send notifications to Squadcast webhook

Go to your SignalFx dashboard and set up a detector for the metric for which you want to get alerts.

Then create a New Alert rule for the detector and define Alert Signal, Alert condition, Alert settings and Alert message.

For Alert recipients, click on the Add Recipient button and then select Webhook and proceed to add a custom webhook.

In the custom Webhook Notification, under URL, add the SignalFx API URL that you have got from the previous step and click Update button and then click on PROCEED TO ALERT ACTIVATION button.

That's it!

  • Now your SignalFx integration is good to go and whenever an alert is triggered in SignalFx, an incident will automatically get created in Squadcast.

  • The SignalFx Integration comes with an Auto-Resolve feature, meaning, when an alert goes under the threshold and gets resolved in SignalFx will automatically get resolved in Squadcast as well.
