Send notifications to Google Hangouts

Google Hangouts is a cross-platform messaging app developed by Google. You can configure Netdata to send alarm notifications to a Hangouts room in order to stay aware of possible health or performance issues on your nodes. Here's an example of the notification in action:

Netdata on Hangouts

To receive notifications in Google Hangouts, you need the following in your Hangouts setup:

  1. One or more rooms.
  2. An incoming webhook for each room.

Follow Google's documentation to create an incoming webhook for each room you want to send Netdata notifications to.

Set the webhook URIs and room names in health_alarm_notify.conf. To edit it on your system, run /etc/netdata/edit-config health_alarm_notify.conf):

Threads (optional)

Instead to receive alarms on different threads, Netdata allows you to concentrate them inside an unique thread when you set the variable HANGOUTS_WEBHOOK_THREAD[NAME].

DEFAULT_RECIPIENT_HANGOUTS="sysadmin devops alarms|critical"

You can define multiple rooms like this: sysadmin devops alarms|critical.

The keywords sysadmin, devops, and alarms are Hangouts rooms.
