Integration via Connector App

To configure the two-way connection to Freshdesk go to Teams -> Apps -> Freshdesk in your SIGNL4 portal. Here you can enter the details accordingly, mainly the URL to your Freshdesk instance and the Freshdesk API key. You can see the description for each item when hovering over the question mark.

You can find the prerequisites and more details about how to obtain the API key in this article.

For details on how to configure the Freshdesk Connector App please consult our getting-started article.

The Freshdesk connector app creates a new automation rule in Freshdesk automatically when it is started for the first time. You can find all the details about that automation rule in this article.

Once that is in place you will then receive alerts to your SIGNL4 team each time a ticket is created.  You can adjust the emails that are delivered within the ticketing settings.

ALERT OPTIMIZATION
SIGNL4 can further increase the visibility of alerts through its Signals and Services section. Augmenting the color and icon of alerts will provide more relevant information at a glance without having to open the alert.
