In this article, the screenshots and the GUI navigation described have not yet been updated to Checkmk version 2.0.0. However, nothing fundamental has changed in the described functions themselves and most of the functions can be found quickly with the Monitor or Setup menu search of the Checkmk 2.0.0 user interface. We will update this article as soon as possible.

1. Function

The incident management platform VictorOps handles the distribution of messages from dozens of different sources, which can be selected as integrations directly in the web interface. A generic REST backend is available for Checkmk.

2. Configuring VictorOps

You do not need to explicitly activate the notifications from Checkmk, only the REST endpoint address:

  1. In VictorOps under Integrations, call the REST Generic item.

  2. Copy the displayed REST endpoint URL.

3. Configuration in Checkmk

In Checkmk you only need to specify this key:

  1. For the Notification Method select the item VictorOps.

  2. Enter (insert) the copied URL under VictorOPS REST Endpoint.

notifications victorops

For testing you can use the Fake check results and Custom notification commands.
