Using VictorOps with Cronitor

VictorOps is an Incident Managment System that makes sure the right people get notified at the right time when something goes wrong. To integrate with VictorOps:

From VictorOps:

  1. Click on "settings" and under the "Alert Behavior" dropdown select "Routing Keys"

  2. Create or select a routing policy that will be used for Cronitor alerts. Make note of the routing key, you will need this later.

  3. Under the "Alert Behavior" dropdown select "Integrations". Click to add a "REST (Generic)" integration.

  4. Copy the provided URL and replace the $routing_key token with the routing key from step 2.

  5. You're done in VictorOps. You'll need the URL later.

From Cronitor:

  1. From your Settings page, click the VictorOps Create integration button.

  2. Give this integration a name. This will be used in the Cronitor UI.

  3. Give this integration a unique identifier. This can be used in the Cronitor API.

  4. Paste the provided VictorOps URL into the Notification URL field and complete the integration.

  5. Select this integration from the VictorOps dropdown box under the "integrations" tab when creating or editing a monitor or notification list.

  6. You're done. You can repeat this process to connect Cronitor to different routing policies.
