Send alert notifications to Amazon EventBridge using Splunk Observability Cloud 🔗

You can configure Splunk Observability Cloud to automatically send alert notifications to Amazon EventBridge when a detector alert condition is met and when the condition clears.

To send Observability Cloud alert notifications to Amazon EventBridge, perform the following configuration tasks:

Step 1: Create an Amazon EventBridge integration in Observability Cloud 🔗

You must be an Observability Cloud administrator to perform this task.

To create an Amazon EventBridge integration in Observability Cloud:

  1. In the Observability Cloud navigation menu, select Data Setup.

  2. In the CATEGORIES menu, select Notification Services.

  3. Click the Amazon EventBridge tile.

  4. Click New Integration to display the configuration options.

  5. By default, the name of the integration is Amazon EventBridge. Give your integration a unique and descriptive name. For information about the downstream use of this name, see About naming your integrations.

  6. In the AWS Account Id field, enter the ID of the AWS account that you want to send Observability Cloud alert notifications to.

  7. The Event Source field displays the name of the partner event source. This value has a one-to-one mapping with the name of the partner event bus you’ll see in Step 2: Accept Observability Cloud as an event source in Amazon EventBridge.

  8. In the AWS Region drop-down list, choose the region where you want to create the partner event source.

  9. Click Save and Enable.

Step 2: Accept Observability Cloud as an event source in Amazon EventBridge 🔗

You must have access to the Amazon EventBridge console to perform this task.

For information about how to accept Observability Cloud as a partner event source in Amazon EventBridge, see Receive events from a SaaS partner with Amazon EventBridge. In the “Supported SaaS partner integrations” section, select SignalFx.

Step 3: Add an Amazon EventBridge integration as a detector alert recipient in Observability Cloud 🔗

To add an Amazon EventBridge integration as a detector alert recipient in Observability Cloud:

  1. Create or edit a detector that you want to configure to send alert notifications using your Amazon EventBridge integration.

    For more information about working with detectors, see Create detectors to trigger alerts and Subscribe to alerts using the Detector menu.

  2. In the Alert recipients step, click Add Recipient.

  3. Select Amazon EventBridge and then select the name of the Amazon EventBridge integration you want to use to send alert notifications. This is the integration name you created in Step 1: Create an Amazon EventBridge integration in Observability Cloud.

  4. Activate and save the detector.

Observability Cloud will send an alert notification to Amazon EventBridge when an alert is triggered by the detector and when the alert clears.
