Sematext Alerts

The built-in Sematext Alerts trigger initiates a flow when it receives a signal from a Sematext alert.

Add the Sematext 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, and then copy the URL and Configuration Payload — you'll use these to set up a webhook in Sematext. 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 Sematext to target the trigger.

Configure Sematext to send requests to the trigger URL

To have Sematext send alerts to the flow trigger, you need to configure a webhook and set it to use the trigger URL.
