Instana Integration Guide – VictorOps


Required: Instana Implemented Environment

VictorOps Version Required: Starter, Growth, or Enterprise

Instana was built to monitor cloud, container, and microservice applications.

From the main timeline select Integrations. From the resulting lists of integrations, select Instana.

If the integration has not yet been enabled, click the “Enable Integration” button. Copy the resulting API key to your clipboard.

In Instana

Under Settings >> Team Settings >> Events and Alerts >> Alert Channels >> Add Alert Channel create a new alert channel for VictorOps alerts.
