Alert Notification Methods

Atlas currently supports many different types of notification methods, outlined below.

Notification methods can be managed by visiting the Configuration page for your user or organization. Notification methods can also be overridden for a specific build configuration, environment, or infrastructure.


An email can be set and receive alerts trigged by Atlas. Email alerts include check status, output, as well as the affected service or node.

To configure Email notifications:

  1. Enter the email into the "Integrations" tab of the environment in Atlas
  2. Optionally, test the alert


Notifications can be sent to a HipChat room. There are two ways to configure HipChat notifications:

User Account

This API token can post to any room that the user account has access to, but will be displayed as that user's name. You may want to create an "Atlas" user.

  1. In your Account Settings, click API Access.
  2. Enter a label for the new token, such as "Atlas".
  3. Ensure the Send Notification scope is selected.
  4. Click Create, and then copy the token from the confirmation page into your Atlas notification methods.

Group Integration

The API token generated here will only have access to the room you chose during creation, but you can customize the display name. You may want to create a Group Integration for each room you intend to post to.

  1. Create a new integration for your HipChat group.
  2. Select the room that this integration should post messages to.
  3. Choose a name for the integration, such as "Atlas". This will be the username that messages are posted as.
  4. Click Create, and then copy the token from the examples on the next page into your Atlas notification methods.


Alert messages can be sent to a Slack channel. Alert types are color coded and show a brief snippet of relevant information.

To configure Slack:

  1. Log into your Slack account and create an incoming webhook
  2. Enter the webhook URL into the field provided in the "Integrations" tab of the environment
  3. Optionally, test the alert


PagerDuty incidents can be automatically created based on Consul Alerts triggered by Atlas. When the alert recovers, the PagerDuty incident is resolved by Atlas.

Only Consul Alerts are sent to PagerDuty

To configure PagerDuty:

  1. Log in to your PagerDuty account
  2. Visit Configuration > Services to choose an existing service API key, or to create a new one
  3. Enter the service API key into the "Integrations" tab of the environment tab of the environment in Atlas
  4. Optionally, test the alert.


Notifications can be sent to custom Webhook URLs to allow for integration into third-party systems. An HTTP Post will be sent with the Post Body containing the JSON payload with the notification details. Example JSON payloads are shown below. Note: The Webhook URL must be accessible from Atlas.
