Stackdriver Integration

Stackdriver is a popular, full-stack, intelligent monitoring service of infrastructure systems and applications running on Amazon Web Services and Rackspace cloud environments. Stackdriver’s goal is to help Dev and Ops teams manage large, distributed applications running in the public cloud. It visualizes applications, systems, and infrastructure metrics. Also, Stackdriver provides a policy system to alert users when predefined thresholds are breached. OpsGenie is an alert and notification management solution that is highly complementary to Stackdriver's alerting mechanism.

What does OpsGenie offer Stackdriver users?

By using OpsGenie’s Stackdriver Integration: you can forward Stackdriver incidents to OpsGenie, and OpsGenie alerts to Stackdriver. OpsGenie can determine the right people to notify based on on-call schedules, using email, text messages (SMS), phone calls, iOS & Android push notifications, and escalating alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed.

Functionality of the integration

  • When you create an incident in Stackdriver, it creates an alert in OpsGenie.
  • When you acknowledge an incident in Stackdriver, the alert will be acknowledged in OpsGenie.
  • When you close an incident in Stackdriver, the alert will close in OpsGenie.
