SIGNL4 Integration with Solarwinds NPM

SolarWinds can send out alerts, but all too often the emails that are sent from critical events are missed. SIGNL4 ensures that all on duty members receive, acknowledge and resolve those critical alerts, all from their smartphones. With persistent notifications and escalation chains there will never be a critical alert that goes unattended. SIGNL4 also offers ad-hoc collaboration between team members for each and every alert, so Subject Matter Experts can be looped in to help resolve issues.

SIGNL4 notifies teams on their mobile devices when custom alert conditions are met in SolarWinds NPM.

How to integrate

From the main dashboard go to Alerts & Activity -> Alerts.


Select an Alert then click on Edit Alert Definition.
