Signals report

The Signals report helps you evaluate inbound signals to your xMatters instance and the workflows that processed them. The report displays the timestamp, status codes, authentication details, and payload for all signals handled by HTTP, App, and Email triggers (as well as legacy inbound integrations). Processed signals include outputs from the trigger and a link to the associated workflow so developers can further evaluate each request using Flow Designer's Activity panel.

The Signals report includes the following information: 



Trigger The name of the trigger that received the signal. Click the link to go directly the canvas in Flow Designer where the trigger is used. Direct canvas access lets you quickly find flows that fail and debug them.
Received When xMatters received the signal.
HTTP Status Code The code indicating whether the signal was accepted or rejected by xMatters.
Authenticated User The user whose credentials were used to authenticate the request.
Outputs A table of name and value pairs that are available for downstream flow steps to use as input values. (Outputs are not applicable for legacy inbound integrations.)
Payload A text file of the trigger payload. The payload window contains a Copy option so you can quickly copy the entire payload to review it, or use it to run tests in a third-party system such as Postman or Insomnia.

Arranging the report

To more easily view data in the table, do one or more of the following:

  • To change the width of a column, move the pointer over the edge of the column and when the re-size icon appears, click and drag the column to the desired size.
  • To rearrange the columns, click and drag a column header to a new location on the table.
  • If the list contains more entries or columns than can be displayed on your screen, scroll horizontally or vertically. The system automatically loads more data as scroll down the page.

Search and filter

Use the search bar and filter to easily find the signal you're looking for. To search, enter at least two letters into the search bar. The search looks at both the name and description fields and highlights where your search term appears in the returned results.

You can narrow your results further using the HTTP status code filter. Select whether you want to see Successes, Failures, or Non-HTTP requests and the report returns all signals that match.
