SIGNL4 Integration with Apify

The SIGNL4 integration is available as an Actor in Apify.

Sending automated alerts from Apify has several benefits. Users can react to critical situations quickly and to take according action. Here come some sample use cases:

  • Alerts on certain Actor states, e.g. failures
  • Web scraping alerts, e.g. if a web page changes or if a certain value or price reaches a threshold
  • Use Robotic Process Automation (RPA) to monitor your web workflows and alert admins if a workflow fails (before your customers will recognize)
  • Integrate with other tools including AI (ChatGPT, LLMs) to create powerful alerting workflows

SIGNL4 is a mobile alert notification app for powerful alerting, alert management and mobile assignment of work items. Get the app at https://www.signl4.com.

Prerequisites

To run the actor in Apify simply create a new task for the actor by clicking the green button above, modify the actor input configuration, click Run and get your results.

Send Alerts

You can trigger an alert using a webhook from another Actor, e.g. when the Actor reaches a certain state. You obtain the webhook URL of the SIGNL4 Actor at API -> API endpoints. The Payload template might look like follows:

{
    "userId": {{userId}},
    "createdAt": {{createdAt}},
    "eventType": {{eventType}},
    "eventData": {{eventData}},
    "resource": {{resource}},
    "secret": "your-signl4-team-or-integration-secret",
    "title": "Web Scraper Alert from Apify",
    "data": {{eventData}}
}

Alternatively, you can trigger the alert within the code of another Actor like this:

import { Actor } from 'apify';
await Actor.init();

// Send SIGNL4 alert
await Actor.call('roncz/signl4', {
    secret: 'your-signl4-team-or-integration-secret',
    title: 'Web Scraper Alert from Apify',
    message: "Web scraper content available.",
    data: headingObject
});

await Actor.exit();

You can find more information at https://apify.com/roncz/signl4.

The alert in SIGNL4 might look like this.
