Google Cloud Incidents

The built-in Google Cloud Incidents trigger initiates flows when it receives a request from a webhook in Google Cloud's operations suite.

Add the 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. Select the authentication method: URL or Basic.
    • If using URL authentication, select the authenticating user, and then copy the URL — you'll use this to set up the webhook in Google.
    • If using Basic authentication, all you need is the credentials for the authenticating xMatters 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. Connect the steps you want to run when xMatters receives a request to that URL.

You're now ready to configure Google Cloud to target the trigger.

Configure Google Cloud to send requests to the trigger URL

To have Google send alerts to the flow trigger, you need to enter the trigger URL when you create a notification webhook.
