SignalFx is a real-time operational intelligence platform that discovers and collects metrics across every component in the cloud. The service provides real-time visibility into today’s dynamic environments for data-driven DevOps teams.

When an alert detector is triggered, this integration relays critical SignalFx data to the correct people and systems to help coordinate and resolve incidents faster.

How to set up a SignalFx configuration

After you give your configuration a name and description, type a name to use when sending alerts (so you can easily tell which configuration or integration the alerts are from).

This integration also needs your SignalFx Access Token to authenticate xMatters requests.

Enter your SignalFx Access Token in the field on the configuration page, then select whether or not you want to add notes to SignalFx when the integration creates an event in xMatters or receives a device delivery update. Add all the users and groups you want to be notified when the integration is triggered, then click Save.

Once you save the configuration, xMatters displays the URL you need to configure SignalFx.

You can now create a webhook in SignalFx targeting this URL.

Your integration is now complete! You can now add the xMatters integration as an alert recipient to an alert rule in SignalFx.

Use your integration

When an alert rule (with the xMatters webhook as the alert recipient) is triggered in SignalFx, the webhook integration sends details to xMatters, which creates an event and notifies the recipients.
