Events generated from integration failures (both inbound and outbound configurations) can be monitored.
- Alerts are generated when an integration failures occur.
- Metrics are provided to monitor integration failures.
- Templates are available to create and assign to the integration.
Monitoring integration failures are applicable to the following types of integrations:
- Monitoring integration
- Collaboration integration
- Email Alert
- Email Incident
- Custom Integration (Only for client-based API’s)
- Integration failure details are not captured.
- Integration failure monitoring is implemented only at the client-level.

- Select the Warning Operator and define value for Warning Threshold.
- Select the Critical Operator and define value for Critical Threshold.
- Click Add. The monitors are added to the template.
- Click Save.
Step 4: Assign template to integration
