Lightstep Alerts

The built-in Lightstep Alerts trigger initiates flows when it receives a request from a webhook in Lightstep. xMatters includes two Lightstep triggers: one for Lightstep Metric Alerts, and one for Lightstep Stream Alerts. You can include both trigger types on the same canvas if required, but signals from Lightstep Metric Alerts will not trigger Lightstep Stream Alerts flows, and vice versa.

Add the Lightstep trigger to the canvas

  1. Go to the Triggers tab in the palette, expand the App Triggers section and then drag either the Lightstep Metric Alerts or Lightstep Stream Alerts trigger onto the canvas.
  2. Double-click the trigger (or click the pencil icon).
  3. Set the authenticating user, and then copy the URL — you'll use this to set up the webhook in Lightstep. 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 Lightstep to target the trigger.
