Set up on Mattermost

  1. Follow the steps provided by Mattermost to create a channel.
  2. We recommend that you follow their naming conventions when you name the channel.
  3. Note two strings:
    • The URL of your Mattermost service (look in the address bar of your browser).
    • The channel name.

Create a Lightup alerting channel that uses Mattermost

You'll need to get the values for URL and Mattermost Channel from your Mattermost service.

  1. In the left pane, on your workspace menu select Integrations. Your current integrations appear in the main Lightup form.
  2. In the main Lightup form, select + near the top left corner to create a new channel, and then choose Mattermost channel.
  3. In the Add Mattermost integration dialog, enter a value for Name - this becomes the Title of the integration when it's listed in the main Lightup form.
  4. Both URL and Mattermost Channel come from the Flock side. Enter the values you noted when you created the channel on Mattermost.
  5. Be sure to set your time zone.
  6. Under Post Alerts to this channel, select the frequency at which the channel will receive new alerts. All posts happen at the beginning of the period indicated by the frequency and cover alerts in the previous period; for example, an hourly post is a digest of all alerts in the preceding hour.
  7. Use the toggles to choose whether to post daily digests and send alerts for resolved incidents.
  8. Optionally, select Send test message to test the new channel.
  9. Select Add to finish.
