Cloudability Integration Guide

PagerDuty + Cloudability Integration Benefits

  • Notify on-call responders based on spending anomalies detected within Cloudability.
  • Send enriched event data from Cloudability.

How it Works

  • Anomalies detected within Cloudability will send an event to a service in PagerDuty. Events from Cloudability will trigger a new incident on the corresponding PagerDuty service, or group as alerts into an existing incident.

Requirements

  • PagerDuty requires you to have Manager level access to a service in order to create an integration key on that service. If you do not have this role, please reach out to a Manager, Admin or Account Owner within your organization to configure the integration.

Integration Walkthrough

In PagerDuty

There are two ways that Cloudability can be integrated with PagerDuty: via Global Event Routing or through an integration on a PagerDuty Service.

If you are adding Cloudability to an existing PagerDuty service, please skip to the Integrating with a PagerDuty Service section of this guide.

Integrating With Global Event Routing

Integrating with Global Event Routing enables you to route events to specific services based on the payload of the event from Cloudability. If you would like to learn more, please visit our article on Global Event Routing.

1. From the Configuration menu, select Event Rules.

2. On the Event Rules screen, click on the arrow next to Incoming Event Source to display the Integration key information. Copy your Integration Key. This is the same integration key you will use for any other tool you want to integrate with using event rules. When you have finished setting up the integration in Cloudability, you will return to this interface to specify how to route events from Cloudability to services in PagerDuty.

Keep this key in a safe place for later use. You can now proceed to the In Cloudability section below.

Integrating With a PagerDuty Service

Integrating with a PagerDuty service directly can be beneficial if you don’t need to route alerts from Cloudability to different responders based on the event payload. You can still use service-level event rules to perform actions such as suppressing non actionable alerts and adjusting the severity.

1. From the Configuration menu, select Services.

2. If you are adding your integration to an existing service, click the name of the service you want to add the integration to. Then select the Integrations tab and click the New Integration button.

If you are creating a new service for your integration, please read our documentation in section Configuring Services and Integrations and follow the steps outlined in the Create a New Service section, selecting Cloudability as the Integration Type in step 4. Continue with the In Cloudability section (below) once you have finished these steps.

3. Enter an Integration Name in the format `monitoring-tool-service-name` (e.g. Cloudability-Shopping-Cart) and select Cloudability from the Integration Type menu.

4. Click Add Integration button to save your new integration. You will be redirected to the Integrations tab for your service.

5. An Integration Key will be generated on this screen. Keep this key saved in a safe place, as it will be used when you configure the integration with Cloudability in the next section.

In Cloudability

1. In the side navigation, expand Settings and click Vendor Credentials.

2. On the Credentials screen, click on the PagerDuty tab and click the Yes, I’m ready button.

3. Enter an Integration Name and the Integration Key (generated in the In PagerDuty section above) and click Save.

4. Once you have completed the integration, you can reach out to support@cloudability.com to trigger a test anomaly on your account. This will send a test incident to your PagerDuty service.

FAQ

Can you integrate Cloudability with multiple PagerDuty services?

Yes, to integrate with multiple services, navigate to Settings, select Vendor Credentials and then click on the PagerDuty tab. Click on the Add a new service button and add the integration key for your service. Repeat these steps for each service.
