Sentry Metric Alerts

The built-in Sentry trigger initiates flows when it receives a request from a webhook in Sentry.

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. Set the authenticating user, and then copy the URL — you'll use this to set up the webhook in Sentry. 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. Connect the steps you want to run when xMatters receives a request to that URL.

You're now ready to configure Sentry to target the trigger.

Configure Sentry to send requests to the trigger URL

To have Sentry send alerts to the flow trigger, you need to add a Metric Alert Rule to Sentry that targets the trigger URL.

A paid Sentry account is required to complete these steps.
