How To Integrate
Integrating SIGNL4 with NinjaRMM
In our example we are forwarding a NinjaRMM alert of a print spooler being down to our SIGNL4 account. Details about the alert will be sent immediately to the SIGNL4 to quickly notify users of the problem.
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
To start this integration, we setup a VM on the Azure network and then installed the Agent provided by NinjaRMM.
Immediately we started to see the server metrics. We are using the preconfigured Print Spooler policy to trigger alerts.
The first integration method was via email. We created a user within NinjaRMM and gave this user the SIGNL4 team specific email address. Configuring the user to receive all alerts regardless of severity.
We then stopped the Print Spooler and the alert was sent directly to SIGNL4.
We preformed a restart of the Print Spooler service and ran the test again. Immediately we received the alert with the JSON payload separated out into an easy to read format within SIGNL4.Example of Ninja RMM email:
