Create a notification destination for an alert
Create a notification destination so that you can receive alerts in Incident Response.
Before you begin
Ensure you have generated a webhook endpoint for Lightstep Observability.
Role required: Responder, Manager, or Administrator
- Log in to Lightstep using your Lightstep e-mail address.
In the navigation pane, click Alerts.
Click the Notification destinations tab.
Click Create a destination and select
On the Create a webhook destination form, perform the following actions:
- Name: Enter a name for the destination.
- URL: Enter the webhook URL you have already created.
The notification destination is created. You will need this destination name while creating an alert.
Once you create a notification destination, you can test whether it is configured properly. Lightstep Observability sends a test message without any specific alert information.
From the list of destinations, click Test for the
destination you have created.
Lightstep Observability sends a test message.
- Click Close.
