The SignalFX Integration (Splunk Cloud Observability) for Signals allows users to create events in FireHydrant from webhooks configured in SignalFX. Anytime that SignalFX sends an event to FireHydrant, we’ll evaluate the event payload to see if if matches a rule setup by one of your teams. If it matches that rule, we’ll alert the team. Learn more about Alert Rules here.

Configuring SignalFX Webhook

  1. In FireHydrant, navigate to the Signals Sources page (Signals > Sources). Here, you’ll find a webhook URL that you will use when creating a webhook in SignalFX.

  2. In SignalFX, create a new webhook and add the URL from step 1 to your webhook.

  3. Create a webhook integration, and then add that webhook integrations as a detector alert recipient in SignalFX.

  4. Click “Add Webhook” to save your webhook.

You can learn more about SignalFX webhooks by reading their Webhooks documentation.

Testing your SignalFX Webhook

  1. When creating the webhook integration, send a test webhook to the Signals Sources URL.
  2. Confirm that FireHydrant received your webhook by visiting Alerting > Webhook Logs in the web app. You should see a new event created. You can open the drawer to see the full payload from SignalFX.
