Create a PagerDuty notifier

To create a PagerDuty notifier, create a service in PagerDuty and then create the notifier in Chronosphere.

Create a new service in PagerDuty

Before creating a PagerDuty notifier in Chronosphere, you must configure the notifier in PagerDuty.

To configure a PagerDuty notifier:

  1. In PagerDuty, go to Services > Service Directory and click New Service.
  2. Enter a name and description for the service and follow the remaining prompts.
  3. Select Prometheus from the integration types list and create the service.
  4. After PagerDuty redirects you to the new service, click the Integrations tab, which displays the integration key.
  5. Copy the integration key, which you enter when creating a PagerDuty notifier in Chronosphere.

The PagerDuty v1 Event API (opens in a new tab) uses a service_key, and the PagerDuty v2 Event API (opens in a new tab) uses a routing_key.

If you're using the PagerDuty v2 Event API, create your notifier with either Terraform or Chronoctl. You can specify only a service_key in the Chronosphere app.

Next, create a PagerDuty notifier in Chronosphere.

    Don't use the default value from PagerDuty in the URL field. You must enter the specified URL or the PagerDuty integration returns an error message.
