Get Alerts

JFrog Connect sends alerts about your devices. For a device resource or process, you just need to configure an alert channel, such as email or webhook, and define the alert threshold.

Overview

In JFrog Connect, you can create alerts that will inform you about various states and resource usage of your devices. For example, you can set a trigger to send you an alert whenever a device has used more than 80% of its disk space.
Creating an alert trigger requires the following procedures:
  1. 1.
    Prepare Channel Type: Create an email account or a webhook URL that will be used in your channel configuration.
  2. 2.
    Create Channel: Configure the channel in which you will receive alerts.
  3. 3.
    Create Alert: Define the type of alert and a threshold for triggering the alert. This procedure is described below.

Create Alert

To create an alert, go to Alerts in the left navigation tree and click Create Alert.
Complete the following information:
  • Alert Name: Enter a name to help you remember what this alert is for.
  • Alert Channels: Choose an alert channel from the list and click Apply. You can add multiple channels. If there are no channels in the list, click Create Channel and define one.
  • Alert Type: You can receive alerts about the device resources or about processes on the device.
  • Trigger when: Define the threshold that will trigger an alert. For example, CPU > 80%.
  • Applied on: Choose the devices the alert will be applied to. If you do not specify anything in the active filter, the criteria in the passive filter will be applied.

There are different tools available to filter the alerts displayed.
  • Filter: Filter according to Alert Type or Alert State.
  • Search: In the Search box, you can filter by any string in the Device Name.
