LightStep Integration Guide

Trouble-shoot faster with LightStep. High-fidelity tracing combines logging and time series data to provide fine-grained detail about every service in your distributed system.

LightStep has built-in capability to set PagerDuty as a destination for alerts. Once you create PagerDuty as a destination, you can test it by sending a test alert. 

Create a PagerDuty Destination

PagerDuty alerts create a new incident in PagerDuty, and the resolution of the alert in LightStep resolves the PagerDuty incident.

To create a PagerDuty destination in LightStep:

    1. From the navigation bar, click Monitoring.   The Monitoring view shows a list of all conditions (the rules that create alerts) on one tab and destinations on the other.
    2. Click the Destinations tab.  
    3. Click New Message Destination and choose PagerDuty. You’re redirected to PagerDuty. PagerDuty asks you to authorize LightStep to trigger, acknowledge, and resolve incidents.
    4. Enter your credentials and click Authorize Integration.
    5. Select an existing service with a LightStep integration or create a new PagerDuty service with an integration for LightStep. Follow the prompts to configure PagerDuty.

Once configured in PagerDuty, the PagerDuty service is listed as a destination in LightStep.  You can test that destination is correctly configured by sending a test alert.

You can now create conditions and rules to tell LightStep when to send the alert.
