🚧

When replacing an existing integration with a new tool or system, we recommend configuring the new integration first to ensure no data is lost.

  1. Log in to your Wavefront Dashboard.
  2. Go to Alerts New > Notification channels .
  3. Delete the BigPanda channel.
  4. Go to Alerts New > Alert policies.
