Configuring VictorOps

VictorOps is fully integrated with Uptime to allow you to push alerts to their platform, and we have worked together to make the integration seamless. To get started, you will first need to set up a VictorOps account at https://victorops.com/.

In order to activate the integration of VictorOps within your Uptime account, you will go to Alerting>Push Notifications then choose VictorOps as the provider type when adding a new push notifications profile.

The following describes the fields shown when configuring VictorOps within your Uptime account:

  • API Key: This will be obtained from VictorOps. Please review the Obtaining VictorOps API Key section below for further documentation.
  • Routing: Select whether or not to route alerts to everyone or to a custom routing key that gets created within VictorOps.
  • Alias: The reference name you desire to assign to your VictorOps profile. It can assist you with organizing multiple provider profiles within your Uptime account.

*Once you've configured your VictorOps profile, you will need to assign the profile to a contact group located under Alerting>Contacts. The profile is assigned at the Push Notifications field within the contact group. 

Obtaining VictorOps API Key

In order to obtain your API Key, you will first go to Settings>Integrations. Next, under the Incoming Alerts column, you will select “Uptime Robot”. The API Key will be gathered from the left of $routing_key? under the URL to Notify e.g. 3b12c999-c0d0-00ec-a0b0-d00d000540ee.
