Configuring alert notifications
As Administrator, you need to learn how to configure alert notifications that appear in the user notification system. The notifications supplement alert information in charts on the Manage/Hive/Compaction Observability dashboard in Grafana. You learn to use the UI for this configuration, but alternatively, you can use the Kubernetes configuration method.
Log in to the CDP web interface, navigate to Alert Settings.
, and navigate to
In Alert Manager Configuration, configure the receiver object by following
instructions in the Prometheus AlertManager v.0.20.0 documentation to
configure the receiver object.
For example, a simple WebHook configuration looks something like this:
global: resolve_timeout: 5m route: group_by: ['alertname', 'namespace', 'service'] group_wait: 30s group_interval: 5m repeat_interval: 3h receiver: notification_system receivers: - name: 'notification_system' webhook_configs: - url: https://co-alerting.prod.mycompany.com send_resolved: true inhibit_rules: - source_match: severity: 'error' target_match: severity: 'warning' equal: ['alertid', 'namespace', 'service']For information about integration possibilities, see the receiver section.
Click Save, and then Apply.
The alertmanager recognizes the change and automatically updates the configuration.
