How To Integrate

Integrating SIGNL4 with Net App Cloud Insights

In our example we are using Net App Cloud Insights to monitor the performance of Azure Virtual Machines.  The on-duty team members will be alerted via Push, SMS and Voice from the email generated within Cloud Insights.

SIGNL4 is a mobile alert notification app for powerful alerting, alert management and mobile assignment of work items.  Get the app at https://www.signl4.com

Prerequisites

A SIGNL4 (https://www.signl4.com) account

A Net App Cloud Insights (https://cloud.netapp.com/cloud-insights) account

Integration Steps

First, we need to make sure the alerts are notified to the SIGNL4 team.

  1. From the Left Navigation Panel, select ADMIN and choose Notifications
  2. Input the team specific SIGNL4 email address as shown below
  3. Set the alert policies to alert on first occurrence
  4. The next time the threshold is breached an email will be sent out to the SIGNL4 team.

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.

Change Alert Color and Override Title + Text 

Override text, colors and titles are triggered by keywords set within the mobile app.
