What does Opsgenie offer Wavefront users?

Use Opsgenie's Wavefront Integration to forward Wavefront alerts to Opsgenie. Opsgenie acts as a dispatcher for these alerts and determines the right people to notify based on on-call schedules– notifies via 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

  • When an alert is fired by Wavefront, an alert is created in Opsgenie automatically through the integration.
  • When an alert is resolved in Wavefront, the alert will be closed in Opsgenie automatically through the integration.
