Catchpoint Installation Instructions

How to Integrate Catchpoint with BigPanda

Create an App Key

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

Locate API Settings

In Catchpoint, go to Settings > API.

Create an API Alert for BigPanda

1. Under Alerts API, add a new endpoint by filling in the fields:

  • Endpoint URL: $WEB_API_BASE_URL/data/integrations/catchpoint?$URL_PARAMS
  • Status: Active

2. Under Format, click Select Template > Add new. A form opens where you can define the template.

3. Fill in the form:

  • Name: BigPanda
  • Format: JSON
  • Template:
    {
    "notificationLevelId" : "${notificationLevelId}",
    "TestName" : "${TestName}",
    "testId":"${testId}",
    "testUrl":"${testUrl}",
    "monitorTypeId":"${monitorTypeId}",
    "AlertTypeId": "${AlertTypeId}",
    "AlertProcessingTimestampUtcEpoch": "${AlertProcessingTimestampUtcEpoch}",
    "alertTriggerPercentage":"${alertTriggerPercentage}",
    "alertTriggerTotal":"${alertTriggerTotal}"
    }

4. Click Save.

5. Click Select Template and select BigPanda.

6. At the bottom of the screen, click Save.

Success!

The next time Catchpoint generates an alert, you will see it in the Incident Dashboard.
