Outlyer Integration

Outlyer provides native as well as easily extensible custom monitoring for Cloud, SaaS, Microservices, and IoT deployments.

What does Opsgenie offer Outlyer users?

The Outlyer platform allows customers to configure highly customizable Alerts and take actions based on the chosen criteria in order to highlight or be notified of events of interest. With the Outlyer integration, Opsgenie acts as a dispatcher for these alerts, determines the right people to notify based on on-call schedules– notifies them using email, text messages (SMS), phone calls, and iPhone & Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed.

Functionality of the integration

  • An alert is triggered when a defined "criteria met" , an alert is also created in Opsgenie automatically through the integration.
  • When the alert "criteria is not met" in Outlyer, the alert is also closed in Opsgenie.
