The built-in Split Alerts trigger initiates a flow when it receives a signal from a Split webhook.
Add the Split Alerts trigger to the canvas
- Go to the Triggers panel in the palette, expand the App Triggers section and drag the trigger onto the canvas.
- Double-click the trigger (or click the pencil icon).
- Set the authenticating user, and then copy the URL — you'll use this to set up the webhook in Split. Alternatively, you can create an integration user to use as the authenticating user.
- Click the Flood Control tab to edit the trigger's default flood control settings. For more information about these settings, see Trigger Flood Control.
- Click Done.
- 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 Split to target the trigger.
Configure Split to send requests to the trigger URL
To have Split send alerts to the flow trigger, you need to configure a webhook and set it to use the trigger URL.
Configure the webhook
Create an integration between Split and xMatters.
- In Split click your profile icon, then select Admin settings.
- In the Admin settings menu go down to Integration settings, and click Integrations.
- Go to Outgoing Webhook (Audit Logs) from the list of available integrations and click Add.
- Select the workspace for the integration from the Add drop-down menu.
- Specify the environment or environments you want the webhook to monitor in the Environments field.
- In the URL field, add the trigger URL you copied from Flow Designer.
- Add the target names of any recipients you want to notify when the alert fires.
- For URL authentication, use an ampersand to attach recipients. For example, if you want to notify Emma Pearson and the on-call members in the group responsible for the Antares service, you'd add &recipients=epearson,antares to the end of the URL.
- For other authentication types, use a question mark to attach recipients. For example, if you want to notify Barry Gull and the on-call members in the group responsible for the Cassiopeia service, you'd add ?recipients=bgull,cassiopeia to the end of the URL.
- You must URL-encode any special characters or spaces in the target names.
- Optional: Click Send Test Message to test the trigger URL and recipients.
- Click Save.
You're ready to use the webhook to trigger automated flows, including steps such as sending alerts and initiating incidents, though we always recommend testing before putting things into use.
