What does Opsgenie offer Instana users?

Use Opsgenie's Instana Integration to forward Instana alerts to Opsgenie. Opsgenie determines the right people to notify based on on-call schedules– using email, text messages (SMS), phone calls and iOS & Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed.

Functionality of the integration

  • When an alert is created in Instana, an alert is created in Opsgenie automatically through the integration.
