Demo Video β€” Global Alerts & Integrations in N|Solid


NOTE: For a better experience, you can activate the closed captions in the video. They are available in English.

From N|Solid Console in the settings area, we will have the option in the menu on the left to select the integrations option, We can create Webhooks from scratch to:

  • Slack Webhooks
  • Microsoft Teams Webhooks
  • Generic Webhooks
  • Pagerduty Integration

When creating, for example, a webhook for Slack, you can assign a name and the URL configured for the incoming slack webhook. In the end, you can save or cancel the integration.

Now when we move in the settings menu to Global Notifications, with the integration already configured, I can select that N|Solid alert me through Slack, for example, if:

  • Event loop Blocked (delay duration of 200ms)
  • Vulnerability Notifications
  • New CPU Profile
  • New Heap Snapshot

In this case, this last option would be the New Heap Snapshot, which would send me a slack message. I also can select if I want the message to reach me by Microsoft Teams Message, by webhook, by email, or according to a Pager Duty integration.

Here I can also customize the message and save the notification.
So when creating the heap snapshot, for example, I will have the notification directly in Slack of my N|Solid Console's behavior; from there, I can check it by opening the Console.
