Alerts are notifications of metric events triggered by anomalies, no data, or deviations from a static value.
To easily and quickly create new alerts based on your stream settings use the +New Alerts option in the Alerts Console or Alerts Management pages.
Anodot draws and optimizes the mandatory alert trigger settings from your defined data streams. When creating a new alert, choose what you want to measure, if you want to get alerts when the anomaly spikes, drops or both and how long the anomaly has to last for an alert to be triggered before you receive a notification.
- An alert can be updated and customized at any time using the Advance options.
- For even more insightful alerts, you can create Ratio alerts which provide a simple way to divide one measure by another measure, for example CPC (Cost per Click) by CTR (Click Through Ration).
- By default anomaly type alerts are created. To create static type and no-data type alerts, use the Advance options.
- Use Advanced options to define the alert type, set target metrics, significance, the minimum delta, duration, the timescale and several other specific alert-type parameters.
Alert notifications are sent to recipients grouped according to distribution channels:
- Email – Recipients identified by an email address.
- Webhook – Recipients identified by a URL. A Webhook is a simple event notification service via HTTP POST. When the alert is triggered, the service sends the alert payload to the specified URL.
- Slack – Recipients identified by WebHook URL created using Slack custom integration.
- PagerDuty - Recipients identified by PagerDuty service name and key.
- JIRA - Recipients identified:
- either by JIRA user email on Cloud installations
- or JIRA user name in On-Premises installations
- Opsgenie - Recipients identified by name, Opsgenie instance and integration API key.
- MS Teams - Recipients identified MS Team name and MS Teams webhook URL
- Users – Recipients defined as users in host app.
Instances identify individual recipients within a notification channel.
