Notifying dynatrace alarms by Whatsapp


Procedure to notify your dynatrace alarms by whatsapp from 24Cevent

Dynatrace is one of the leading Application Performance Monitors (APM) on the market, capable of intercepting all the traffic of your applications, to detect performance problems and indicate specifically when and why an error occurred, even at the level of code and database queries.

In this article, we show you how to improve incident response by getting your Dynatrace alarms notified by whatsapp using the 24Cevent software.

Improve your incident response times

One of Dynatrace’s key features is its ability to generate real-time alarms when system problems are detected. These alarms are sent through various channels, such as email, SMS or webhooks, however, whatsapp is not natively available. Not having a fast and effective notification system means that any critical incident detected will not be received in a timely manner.

If we want to improve platform uptime and customer experience, improving response times and reducing MTTR (mean time to repair) is one of the most important indicators to achieve this.

Automatic whatsapp notifications play a critical role in this process:

  • Reduce MTTA (mean time to acknowledge), where by having a predefined decision matrix and a frequently used notification channel, the time from when an incident is detected until the person in charge receives the alarm drops to a couple of seconds.

Configure Dynatrace integration

As a prerequisite, you must have an account created in 24Cevent, the platform that will perform the automatic 24×7 notification of dynatrace alarms by whatsapp.

To configure Dynatrace, go to Settings –> Integrations –> Problem Notifications.

  • Notification type: “Custom Integration”.
  • Display Name: Any representative name of the integration
  • Webhook URL: In your 24Cevent dashboard you will have access to the integration url.
  • Custom Payload: In this variable, all the variables that will be sent to 24Cevent are indicated in JSON format, which can be used for filters, columns in the event management panel or even as variables to customize the notification message. Example:
"ImpactedEntity": "{ImpactedEntity}",
"ImpactedEntityNames": "{ImpactedEntityNames}",
"Message":"Dynatrace notifica la alerta: {ImpactedEntity} con criticidad {ProblemSeverity}",
"CustomSubject":"Alerta Urgente"

Dynatrace alarm notification via whatsapp through the 24Cevent integration tool is an effective strategy to improve incident response in IT environments. It provides a quick and direct way to alert operations teams to critical issues, resulting in faster resolution and less business disruption. By leveraging this functionality, organizations can strengthen their observability and monitoring capabilities, ensuring the stability and performance of their IT systems.

Early detection of an incident and knowing the root cause is critical. But just as important is that the alarm is handled in a timely manner and that the person trained to resolve the incident is notified as soon as possible to begin working on a solution.

Therefore, implementing an automatic whatsapp notification solution as a complement to native notification methods can provide several benefits:

  1. 24×7: To be able to provide 24×7 support to the systems at a low cost.
  2. MTTA: Reducing notification times
  3. Standardization: To be able to deliver standardized context information to the support team.
  4. Parallelization: Notifying different equipment simultaneously, including suppliers
  5. SLA Control: Measure the time elapsed between the generation of an incident and its resolution, in order to generate SLA compliance reports.
