HashiCorp Consul

Create iLert incidents from HashiCorp Consul Health Check events and get alerted through iLert for high priority issues.

With the iLert HashiCorp Consul integration you can create incidents in iLert based on HashiCorp Consul Health Check events.

In iLert

Create an alert source

1. Go to the "Alert sources" tab and click Create new alert source

2. Enter a name and select your desired escalation policy. Select "API" as the Integration Type and click on Save.

3. On the next page, an API Key is generated. You will need this API Key below when setting up the Consul-Alerts tool.

In Consul Server

Configure Consul-Alerts

1. Install Consul-Alerts as per the guide at https://github.com/AcalephStorage/consul-alerts/blob/master/README.md

2. Once the Consul-Alerts are running, we can set the iLert integration key using curl.

curl -X PUT -d 'YOUR_API_KEY' http://localhost:8500/v1/kv/consul-alerts/config/notifiers/ilert/api-key

3. Enable iLert notifications in Consul-Alerts.

curl -X PUT -d 'true' http://localhost:8500/v1/kv/consul-alerts/config/notifiers/ilert/enabled

4. (Optional) Generating a test incident by having a health check fail to confirm the integration is working.
