Integrate with PagerDuty
The integration with PagerDuty allows you to configure email notifications that you can receive daily or any time there is a change to a Best Practice Check or alert.
If you are new to CloudCheckr and need to configure your PagerDuty integration, review and follow this workflow:
- Launch PagerDuty.
- From the PagerDuty landing page, click the Configuration tab and select Services.
- From the Service Directory page, click + New Service.
- Under General Settings on the Add a Service page, type a name for your new service.
- Under Integration Settings, select the Use our API directly radio button and from the drop-down menu, select Events API v2 from the drop-down list.
- In the Integration Name text field, type the name of your API event.
Here is an example of what your screen may look like after you complete your integration settings:
- Scroll down to Incident Settings and from the Escalation Policy drop-down list, select an escalation policy that best fits with your use case. In our example, it is Sev1 Alarm.
- Click Add Service.
Your new service page will open.
- On your new service page in PagerDuty, click Integrations.
