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:

  1. Launch PagerDuty.
  2. From the PagerDuty landing page, click the Configuration tab and select Services.
  3. From the Service Directory page, click + New Service.
  4. Under General Settings on the Add a Service page, type a name for your new service.
  5. 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.
  6. 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:

  7. 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.
  8. Click Add Service.

    Your new service page will open.

  1. On your new service page in PagerDuty, click Integrations.
  2. Type a name for your key.

    PagerDuty will generate a unique integration key.

    Save this integration key in a safe location because you will need it in Step 3: Create a CloudCheckr Integration.
