Honeybadger Integration

Honeybadger is a service that monitors applications in production and lets you know about errors, outages, and performance problems. Honeybadger provides notifications via different channels along with rich reports that makes fixing the problems easier.

What does OpsGenie offer to Graylog users?

Integrate OpsGenie with Honeybadger to dispatch the alerts generated by Honeybadger, determines the right people to notify based on on-call schedules– notifies via emails, SMS, phone calls, and iOS, and Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until they are acknowledged or closed.

Functionality of the integration

  • When an alert is created in Honeybadger, an alert is also created in OpsGenie automatically through the integration.

  • When an alert is closed in Honeybadger, the related alert is closed in OpsGenie.

  • Go to OpsGenie's Honeybadger integration page
  • Click Save Integration.
  • To modify default rules for the Honeybadger Integration, click Go to Advanced Settings.
  • Create/edit conditions for filtering Honeybadger alerts on Filter segment.

Honeybadger Events

When the Honeybadger Integration is added to OpsGenie, two rules for creating alerts and two rules for closing alerts are automatically added for you which matches Honeybadger's fault and site based alerts. The content for those two types of alerts are totally different so use and modify those rules to stay up-to-date with all the features Honeybadger provides.

The following is the complete list of event types that Honeybadger generate and you can use for the Event field for filtering:

  • occurred
  • rate_exceeded
  • down
  • resolved
  • up
  • unresolved
  • commented
  • assigned
  • deployed
