Shared Alerts, Webhooks and Ticketing Systems

2 min

With Shared Alerts you can define events for which your entire team would like to receive notifications either through emails or webhooks. You can also connect your preferred ticketing system.

You can define alert profiles which can be applied either to devices or agents indifferently by any member of your team so that they are shared across the whole team.

For example, this functionality can be used if you are planning to feed alerts into a ticketing system or if you want to send email alerts to an email address that is not configured as an account within Domotz Pro.

You can access the Shared Alerts configuration from the side menu inside the Domotz WebApp.

The first step is to create at least one Contact Channel for Domotz to use to deliver alerts and notifications:

Step 1, click on the alerts settings icon in main menu on the left side. Step 2, click on the button above named 'Contact Channels  & Ticketing Systems'. Step 3, select the contact channel to create or to connect to in case of a ticketing system.

As you see above you will be able to select the following contact channel types:

  • An Email Address endpoint is simply an email address (whether a Domotz account or not). 
  • Webhook address endpoint is a third party host that will receive a message once the events are triggered. You will find a detailed list with all the possible Webhook events on the Domotz Portal>Developers>Domotz Webhook, in the table under Webhook Events.
  • A PSA or Ticketing System give you the ability to connect to your favourite system and receive there the alerts, Currently supported:
