NS1 now offers up/down monitoring alerts delivered via PagerDuty.
Step 1: Create a generic API service in PagerDuty
Log in to your team’s PagerDuty account.
In the Configuration drop-down, select Services.
Click Add New Service.
- Under Integration Settings, select Use our API directly. Fill out the remaining form fields in accordance with your team’s standard operating procedures.
- Select Add Service to generate an integration key.
Step 2: Set up notifications in the NS1 portal
Navigate to a monitoring job, and click on the Notifications tab.
Assign an existing notification list to this monitoring job (if one is not attached already) or simply add a new notifier.
Note: Read more about setting up notification lists.
Click Add Notifier, and select PagerDuty from the dropdown menu.
Copy/paste the integration key, and click Add to list.
Notifications are sent to PagerDuty whenever up/down status changes for a monitor assigned to the same notification list. You can update this at any time via the Monitors section of the NS1 portal.
PagerDuty notification include: up/down status, monitor name, URL, timestamp and region.
