PagerDuty Integration

InsightFinder can source the data from and send the notifications/alerts to PagerDuty. Below documentation is a walk through of how to configure PagerDuty in InsightFinder.

How it Works

InsightFinder generates alerts for incidents predicted in the system. Alert from InsightFinder trigger a new event on the corresponding PagerDuty Service for Global Event Routing.


The PagerDuty integration requires an admin role in order to authorize the account. If you are not an admin, please reach out to an admin or account owner within your organization to configure the integration for you.
