Kapacitor is an open source data processing framework that makes it easy to create alerts, run ETL jobs and detect anomalies. The following guide will walk you through this integration.
From the VictorOps web portal, select Integrations. From the resulting list of integration options, select Kapacitor. On the resulting page, click Enable Integration.
Copy the Service API Key to the clipboard, ensuring to replace “$routing_key” with a valid routing key. All alerts from this integration configuration will route through the specified routing key.
In the Kapacitor configuration file (“kapacitor.conf” for example), locate the “[victorops]” section, then set “enabled” to
true, “api-key” to the API key from the “URL to notify” from the “In VictorOps” section above, and “routing-key” to the actual routing key you intend to use.
[victorops] enabled = true api-key = "558e7ebc-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX" routing-key = "Sample_route"
Now you will be able to chain “.victorOps()” and “.routingKey()” in the TICKscript.
Alert will be sent to VictorOps with the routing_key set to the value of “routing-key” in the Kapacitor configuration file:
stream |alert() .victorOps()
Alert will be sent to VictorOps with the routing_key set to “Another_route”:
stream |alert() .victorOps() .routingKey('Another_route')
If you want to send all alerts to VictorOps without explicitly stating it in the TICKscript, then set “global” to
true in the “[victorops]” section of the Kapacitor configuration file.
[victorops] enabled = true api-key = "558e7ebc-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX" routing-key = "Sample_route" global = true
Alerts from Kapacitor should now appear in VictorOps as they are generated.
