Monitis Integration

Monitis is a monitoring software for applications, websites, servers and cloud apps, etc.. OpsGenie is an alert and notification management solution that is highly complementary to Monitis.

​What does OpsGenie offer to Monitis users?

OpsGenie has a specific API integration with Monitis. Monitis sends alerts to OpsGenie API, with detailed information. OpsGenie acts as a dispatcher for Monitis alerts, determining the right people to notify based on on-call schedules, using email, text messages (SMS), phone calls and iPhone & Android push notifications, and escalating alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed.


Functionality of the integration

  • When an alert is created on Monitis, an alert is created in OpsGenie automatically through the integration.
  • When the alert is closed on Monitis, the related alert is closed in OpsGenie.
