Stackdriver configuration

Step 1: Create Webhook notification

  1. Log into Stackdriver.
  2. Go to Account Settings > Notifications > Webhooks, click Add Webhook.
  3. Configure the Webhook details:
    • ENDPOINT URL: https://{Your_OpsRamp_domain}/integrations/alertsWebhook/{tenantId}/alerts?vtoken={token}
      Enter the TenantId and Token from the OpsRamp configuration.
    • Webhook name: Enter name for Webhook. Example: OpsRamp Webhook
    • Basic Auth: Not required
  4. Click Save. This Webhook is used while creating an Alerting policy.
Configure Webhook

Step 2: Create uptime check

Stackdriver checks the availability of your service by accessing it from different geographical locations. An uptime check periodically makes an automated request to a URL, or a resource on regular basis. If the resource fails to respond to a request sent from at least two geographical locations, then the uptime check fails thereby creating an incident in Stackdriver. The incident is notified to OpsRamp as an alert.

To create an uptime check:

  1. From Uptime Checks, click Add Uptime Check. A New Uptime Check window is displayed.
  2. Configure the following for the check:
    • Title: Enter name for uptime check. Example: OpsRamp Staging
    • Check Type: Select a protocol: HTTP, HTTPS, TCP. Example: HTTPS
    • Resource Type: Select resource type. Example: URL
    • Hostname: Enter the name of the host you want to add uptime check.
      This field is applicable only if the resource type is URL.
    • Path: Enter a path in the host or use the default path.
    • Check every: Select the time-frequency at which the check should send requests to the resource. Example: Five minutes. Each geographic location attempts to reach the resource every five minutes.
    • Click Test to ensure Uptime Check works correctly.
    • Click Save to save the Uptime Check.

Uptime check is created and is available on the Uptime Checks page. Create an alerting policy for the check to send notifications to OpsRamp.

Uptime Check

Step 3: Create alerting policy

Alerting policy is a set of conditions that determine a resource is functioning normally and to send notifications if a problem occurs in the functioning process.

To create an alerting policy:

  1. Go to Uptime Checks, select the required Uptime check, click the Menu icon, and click Create Alerting Policy.
  2. Configure the policy details:
    • Condition: Click Add Condition, select the required Uptime Check condition, enter the details for the check and click Save Condition.
    • Notification: Select Notification type - Webhook and value - configured webhook name. Example: OpsRamp Webhook.
    • Documentation: Not required.
    • Name: Enter a name for alerting policy. Example: Uptime Check Policy.
  3. Click Save Policy. The alerting policy is created and attached to the Uptime Check.

When the configured conditions in the alerting policy are met, an event is triggered thereby creating an incident. The incident is notified to OpsRamp as an alert using the Webhook mechanism. OpsRamp displays the alerts in the Alerts tab.
