Custom Webhooks: Metric Alerts

Last Updated: Jan. 25, 2024

Set up one or more custom webhooks to define notification settings for your metric alerts.

Set Up a Custom Webhook for Your Metric Alert

Create a Custom Webhook

STEP 1. Create a generic outbound webhook or other custom webhook.

Define Your Metric Alert Notification Settings

As you create a metric alert, you must define your alert’s Notifications settings. You have different options, depending on whether or not you are using the Group By condition.

Using Group By

When using Group By conditions, you will see the following options:

  • Trigger a single alert when at least one combination of the group by values meets the condition. A single notification, aggregating all values matching an alert query and conditions, will be sent to your Coralogix Incidents screen.
  • Trigger a separate alert for each combination that meets the condition. Multiple individual notifications for each Group By field value may be sent to your Coralogix Incidents Screen when query conditions are met. Select one or more keys – consisting of a subset of the fields selected in the alert conditions – in the drop-down menu. A separate notification will be sent for each key selected.
  • When grouping by a given Group By field, you must group the metric by this field to allow the data to propagate to the $GROUP_BY_VALUE_1 parameter.
  • The number of Group By permutations is limited to 1000. If there are more permutations, then only the first 1000 are tracked.

When not using the Group By condition, a single alert will be triggered and sent to your Incidents Screen when the query meets the condition.

Define Notification Parameters

  • Notify every. Sets the alert cadence. After an alert is triggered and a notification is sent, the alert will continue to work, but notifications will be suppressed for the duration of the suppression period.
  • Notify when resolved. Activate to receive an automatic update once an alert has ceased.
  • Define additional alert recipient(s) and notification channels by clicking + ADD WEBHOOK.
