SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor Alerts

The built-in SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor Alerts trigger initiates a flow when it receives a signal from a SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor (NPM) alert.

Add the SolarWinds NPM trigger to the canvas

  1. Go to the Triggers panel 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 SolarWinds. 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 SolarWinds NPM to target the trigger.

Configure SolarWinds NPM to send requests to the trigger URL

To have SolarWinds NPM send alerts to the flow trigger, you need to create a new alert or edit an existing alert and set it to use the trigger URL.
