I wondered if this scenario is possible:
Official governmental departments use twitter to send tweets about roadwork, accidents in traffic etc. We are a responsible for public transpont in an area, and would log incidents that might affect public transport. These logs are the basis of messages on ticket apps, statuspages and other correlation information regarding the "health" of the ongoing public transport (Bus/Tram/Boats).
If we would like to forward tweets from a certain provider/account directly into Opsgenie as alerts where a dispatch on duty would monitor and escalate if it affects "our business" to incidents that would futher create statuses on statuspages and messages to different media, including our own twitter and e.g. facebook, would such a scenario be possible? Is there anyone who have made such an endavour or similar?
Hi @Asle K Andersen ,
Some customers have connected Twitter to Opsgenie through 3rd party apps such as IFTTT and Zapier. Both follow an IF >> THEN conditional statement format. For example; IF XYZ account tweets, THEN POST to a webhook, send an email, etc.
IFTTT offers a few different ways to integrate with Twitter including a webhook and email option. This short video might provide more insight into how to use a webhook: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q3WhvkefOR0
with the webhook endpoint being http://api.opsgenie.com/v2/alerts?apiKey=XXXXX
^ and the API key in the URL is from an API Integration.
They also offer the option to send the tweet through an email. The email address used for this could be from an Email Integration. Any time the Twitter account tweets >> trigger the Email Integration which then creates an alert in Opsgenie.
Opsgenie has a prebuilt integration with Zapier that allows you to connect your Opsgenie account with Zapier. "Zaps" can then be created which are essentially their conditional statements; when an account tweets, create an alert in Opsgenie.
I'm sure there are other apps and methods that can be used, but hope this helps! Let us know if you have additional questions.
We’re excited to announce the latest enhancement to Opsgenie’s Incident Investigation view. Now when an incident occurs users can select the previous stable deployment, and begin the redeployment pro...
