Custom Webhooks Alerts Integration

Automate incident management of your IT services when a metric alert is triggered with our custom generic Webhooks-based integration. Sematext has threshold, anomaly and / or heartbeat Alerts integration with custom webhooks used to trigger a POST request to the URL you set in JSON format.

Webhooks are real-time notifications that send you a specially formatted message whenever an alert occurs in your applications. Using this approach, whenever problem in your environment that affects real users is detected, a webhook triggers an HTTP POST request to a target URL that you specify. The payload message of the HTTP POST request is completely customizable, as long as it represents valid JSON syntax.

Your devops team will be able to:

  • quickly respond to service failures and minimize downtime
  • proactively use Sematext APM services to identify performance issues before the user experience is affected
  • pinpoint the root cause of the problem and focus on fixing rather than investigating your IT infrastructure and application issues
