Use Opsgenie's WhatsUp Gold integration to sends WhatsUp Gold alerts to Opsgenie API with detailed information. Opsgenie acts as a dispatcher for WhatsUp Gold alerts, 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.
- When WhatsUp Gold triggers an alert, an alert is created in Opsgenie automatically through the integration.
- When WhatsUp Gold closes the alert, the related alert in Opsgenie is closed automatically through the integration.
