How to Integrate API Fortress

Create an App Key

First create an App Key. You'll need a separate App Key for each integrated system.

Configure the connector to send alerts to BigPanda.

1. In API Fortress, click the gear icon, and then click Alert Groups. This section manages all the API Fortress connectors.

2. Enter a Label for the integration. For example, enter BigPanda.

3. Click Edit Connectors, and then click +Connector to this Group.

4. Select the BigPanda.io connector.

5. Enter the authorization header and app key from BigPanda.

Bearer Token$TOKEN

6. Click the check icon. API Fortress now sends all alerts from scheduled events to BigPanda.

Test the Integration by sending a Test Alert.

1. In API Fortress, add an incorrect assertion in your test and schedule it to run.

2. In BigPanda, go to the Incidents tab to confirm that the test alert was received. Be sure to clean up any test data in API Fortress and resolve the incident in BigPanda.
