Prometheus Integration Guide
Prometheus is an open-source monitoring system with a dimensional data model, flexible query language, efficient time series database and modern alerting approach. Integrate AlertOps’ alert management platform with Prometheus to receive and respond to critical alerts through email, SMS, push notification, and phone alerts. AlertOps ensures that alerts received from Prometheus always reach the correct, available team member by utilizing escalation policies and on-call schedules.
Step 1: From the main menu, hover over Integrations and then select Inbound Integrations from the sub menu.
Step 2: Select the Add Web API Integration button.
Step 3: You should now be on the Web API Integration Detail page. Select Prometheus from the Integration Template dropdown menu.
Step 4: Enter a name for the integration. Select an escalation rule to determine the integration's escalation policy. And, enter the names of recipient user(s) and recipient group(s). Click 'Save Changes.' Then, click 'Copy URL' to copy the URL endpoint to be used in the Prometheus configuration.

Alert Triggering Information
AlertOps will automatically create an incident when a new alert is received from Prometheus with an IncidentStatus status of “firing.”
If an alert with status “firing” matches an existing Open Alert, AlertOps will recognize the new alert as a duplicate and ignore the alert. The alert will be recorded in the Inbound Messages table as “Mapped Appended.”
AlertOps will automatically close the same incident when an alert with an IncidentStatus status “resolved” is received.
