Sensu Go Integration Guide

Sensu is a free and open source monitoring that handles cloud environments. Sensu allows one to monitor servers services application health and business KPIs.

What can Zenduty do for Sensu Go users?

With Sensu's Integration, Zenduty sends new Sensu alerts to the right team and notifies them based on on-call schedules via email, text messages(SMS), phone calls(Voice), Slack, Microsoft Teams and iOS & Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed. Zenduty provides your NOC, SRE and application engineers with detailed context around the Sensu ticket alert along with playbooks and a complete incident command framework to triage, remediate and resolve incidents with speed.

Whenever a Event is created in Sensu, Zenduty will create an incident. When the event is resolved on Sensu, Zenduty will auto-resolve the ticket.

You can also use Alert Rules to custom route specific Sensu ticket alerts to specific users, teams or escalation policies, write suppression rules, auto add notes, responders and incident tasks.
