  • monitoringTool
  • messageType
  • entityID
  • entityDisplayName
  • stateMessage
  • timestamp

For more information, see victorops.event() parameters.

Function type signature
(
    url: string,
    ?monitoringTool: A,
) => (
    mapFn: (
        r: B,
    ) => {
        C with
        timestamp: H,
        stateMessage: G,
        messageType: F,
        entityID: E,
        entityDisplayName: D,
    },
) => (<-tables: stream[B]) => stream[{B with _sent: string}]
For more information, see Function type signatures.

Parameters

url

(Required) VictorOps REST endpoint integration URL.

Example: https://alert.victorops.com/integrations/generic/00000000/alert/<api_key>/<routing_key> Replace <api_key> and <routing_key> with valid VictorOps API and routing keys.

monitoringTool

Tool to use for monitoring. Default is InfluxDB.

Examples

Send critical events to VictorOps

import "contrib/bonitoo-io/victorops"
import "influxdata/influxdb/secrets"

apiKey = secrets.get(key: "VICTOROPS_API_KEY")
routingKey = secrets.get(key: "VICTOROPS_ROUTING_KEY")
url = "https://alert.victorops.com/integrations/generic/00000000/alert/${apiKey}/${routingKey}"
endpoint = victorops.endpoint(url: url)

crit_events =
    from(bucket: "example-bucket")
        |> range(start: -1m)
        |> filter(fn: (r) => r._measurement == "statuses" and status == "crit")

crit_events
    |> endpoint(
        mapFn: (r) =>
            ({
                monitoringTool: "InfluxDB",
                messageType: "CRITICAL",
                entityID: "${r.host}-${r._field}-critical",
                entityDisplayName: "Critical alert for ${r.host}",
                stateMessage: "${r.host} is in a critical state. ${r._field} is ${string(
                        v: r._value,
                    )}.",
                timestamp: now(),
            }),
    )()

The future of Flux

Flux is going into maintenance mode. You can continue using it as you currently are without any changes to your code.

Flux is going into maintenance mode and will not be supported in InfluxDB 3.0. This was a decision based on the broad demand for SQL and the continued growth and adoption of InfluxQL. We are continuing to support Flux for users in 1.x and 2.x so you can continue using it with no changes to your code. If you are interested in transitioning to InfluxDB 3.0 and want to future-proof your code, we suggest using InfluxQL.
