Google Stackdriver Integration Guide

Google Stackdriver is a powerful monitoring, logging, and diagnostic tool that gives insight into the health, performance, and availability of cloud applications.  Integrate AlertOps’ alert management platform with Google Stackdriver to receive and respond to critical alerts through email, SMS, push notification, and phone alerts. AlertOps ensures that alerts received from Google Stackdriver always reach the correct, available team member by utilizing escalation policies and on-call schedules.

Alert Triggering Information

AlertOps will automatically create an incident when a new alert is received from Google Stackdriver with an IncidentStatus status of “open.”

If an alert with status “open” 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 “closed” is received.
