Configuring Librato

Librato 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 Librato account at https://librato.com/

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

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

  • Name: The reference name you desire to assign to your Librato profile. It can assist you with organizing multiple provider profiles within your Uptime account.
  • Email:  The email address which you registered with, at Librato.
  • API token: This will be obtained from Librato. Please review the Obtaining Librato API Key section below for further documentation.
  • Metric name: There's no need to pre-create a metric, rather enter a metric name and it will be created as soon as the first chunk of data reaches Librato. 

*Once you've configured your Librato 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 your Librato API key

Go to Account > API Tokens, generate a new "Record Only" token, then copy and paste it into the field above.
