Introduction

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)

Monitoring integration failures

Monitoring integration failures involves the following:

  1. Viewing metrics
  2. Creating a monitor
  3. Creating a template
  4. Assigning a template to integration
  5. Viewing alerts

Step 1: View metrics

To view the metrics, from the console:

  1. From All Clients, select a client.
  2. Go to Setup > Monitor Management > Metrics.
  3. From Collector Type, select Integration.

The following metrics are available for monitoring integration failures:

integration.inbound.reqs.throttledDefines the metric used to throttle the inbound requests.
integration.outbound.failures.countDefines the metric used to count the failures raised during the outbound data flow.
integration.outbound.timeoutsDefines the metric used to count the timeouts caused during outbound data flow.

Step 2: Create monitor

To create a monitor with integration failure metrics:

  1. Select Setup > Monitoring > Monitors and click +.

      1. In the Frequency drop-down list, select the required frequency of polling to monitor selected metrics.
      2. In the Monitor Definition drop-down list, select the monitor created in the earlier step.
      3. Select the Alert checkbox for all parameters.
      4. Select the Warning Operator and define value for Warning Threshold.
      5. Select the Critical Operator and define value for Critical Threshold.
      6. Click Add. The monitors are added to the template.
  3. Click Save.

Step 4: Assign template to integration

To assign the template to an existing integration:

  1. Go to Integrations > Integrations.
  2. Select a client for the selected partner. All the installed integrations for the client are displayed.
  3. Select the integration and click the Monitoring tab to assign the template.
  4. Click +Assign Template. The list of templates are displayed.
  5. Select the template to be assigned to the client and click Assign Templates.
