iLert is a platform for alerting, on-call management and status pages. You can use a webhook in the iLert platform to forward alert events to the Sumo Logic HTTP endpoint. Using these logs, you can monitor the lifecycle of alerts, from creation and acceptance to re-routing, escalation, and resolution, while also tracking responder actions and channel attachments for effective incident management in Sumo Logic. For more details, refer to the iLert Documentation.

Event types

The Sumo Logic integration for iLert ingests alert events into Sumo Logic through an outgoing webhook available in iLert. The following event types are ingested through the webhook:

  • Alert created
  • Alert accepted
  • Alert re-routed
  • Alert escalated
  • Alert priority raised
  • Alert resolved
  • Alert comment added
  • Responder added to alert
  • Responder removed from alert
  • Channel attached to alert
  • Channel detached from alert
