What can Zenduty do for Grafana users?

With Grafana’s Integration, Zenduty sends new Grafana alerts to the right team and notifies them based on on-call schedules via email, text messages(SMS), phone calls(Voice), Slack, Microsoft Teams and iOS & Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed. Zenduty provides your NOC, SRE and application engineers with detailed context around the Grafana alert along with playbooks and a complete incident command framework to triage, remediate and resolve incidents with speed.

Whenever Grafana triggers an alert based on a predefined condition, Zenduty will create an incident. When the alert goes back to the recovered state on Grafana, Zenduty will auto-resolve the incident.

You can also use Alert Rules to custom route specific Grafana alerts to specific users, teams or escalation policies, write suppression rules, auto add notes, responders and incident tasks.
