Hey, We have a system which keeps track of when each server last checked in. The data is available by using a restful JSON API. Is it possible for Opsgenie to call the API, and then if the timestamp is older than X, create an alert? Or heartbeat notification?
Hi @Nathan Goodacre - it wouldn't be possible for Opsgenie to initiate the connection and check the timestamps. But you could send the alert to Opsgenie by creating an alert through our Alert API https://docs.opsgenie.com/docs/alert-api
Also - this does sound like something you could use heartbeat monitoring for. With heartbeat monitoring, you would set up a job or task on your server to ping the heartbeat on a certain interval (like every 10 minutes for example). Then if 10 minutes go by without a ping received, the heartbeat will generate an alert that the heartbeat is expired. Maybe this would be a solution for what you're looking for? https://docs.opsgenie.com/docs/heartbeat-monitoring
