Discord Agent alert notifications
Learn how to send notifications to Discord using Netdata's Agent alert notification feature, which supports dozens of endpoints, user roles, and more.
This file assumes you have read the Introduction to Agent alert notifications, detailing how the Netdata Agent's alert notification method works.
This is what you will get:
You will need:
- The incoming webhook URL as given by Discord.
Create a webhook by following the official Discord documentation. You can use the same on all your Netdata servers (or you can have multiple if you like - your decision).
- one or more Discord channels to post the messages to
- terminal access to the Agent you wish to configure
Configure Netdata to send alert notifications to Discord
This file mentions editing configuration files.
- To edit configuration files in a safe way, we provide the
edit configscript located in your Netdata config directory (typically is
/etc/netdata) that creates the proper file and opens it in an editor automatically.
Note that to run the script you need to be inside your Netdata config directory.
It is recommended to use this way for configuring Netdata.
health_alarm_notify.conf, changes to this file do not require restarting Netdata:
DISCORD_WEBHOOK_URLto your webhook URL.
DEFAULT_RECIPIENT_DISCORDto the channel you want the alert notifications to be sent to.
You can define multiple channels like this:
All roles will default to this variable if left unconfigured.
You don't have to include the hashtag "#" of the channel, just its name.
You can then have different channels per role, by editing
DEFAULT_RECIPIENT_DISCORD with the channel you want, in the following entries at the bottom of the same file:
The values you provide should already exist as Discord channels in your server.
An example of a working configuration would be:
# discord (discordapp.com) global notification options
