Pingdom Check Alerts

The built-in Pingdom Check Alerts trigger initiates a flow when it receives a signal from a Pingdom webhook.

Add the Pingdom Check Alerts trigger to the canvas

  1. Go to the Triggers tab in the palette, expand the App Triggers section and drag the trigger onto the canvas.
  2. Double-click the trigger (or click the pencil icon).
  3. Set the authenticating user, then copy the URL — you'll use this to set up the webhook in Pingdom. Alternatively, you can create an integration user to use as the authenticating user.

  4. Click the Flood Control tab to edit the trigger's default flood control settings. For more information about these settings, see Trigger Flood Control.
  5. Click Done.
  6. On the flow canvas, connect the steps you want to run when xMatters receives a request to that URL.

You're now ready to configure Pingdom to target the trigger.

Configure Pingdom to send requests to the trigger URL

To have Pingdom send alerts to the flow trigger, you need a check and an integration. The check determines if something is wrong. The integration is the webhook that notifies xMatters.
