LogicMonitor Integration with IFTTT (If This, Then That)

IFTTT is a free SaaS platform that helps you "do more with all your apps and devices" - by providing an integration point between commonly used services and platforms. In the following example, we're using the IFTTT Applet webhooks "trigger" to activate a Philips Hue wireless lighting "action" - blinking the lights of the connected Hue platform as a result of a LogicMonitor alert!

Other things you might be able to do with LogicMonitor alerts, through IFTTT (lots of untested possibilities!) :

The Finished Result

The following tutorial assumes that you have an IFTTT account created and permissions to add an integration to your LogicMonitor account.

Step 1: Log into your IFTTT account and create a new 'Applet'


Step 2: Search for and choose the 'Webhooks' service.


Step 3: Choose the 'Receive a Web Request' trigger.


Step 4: Configure (and remember) the event name that will be recognized by the incoming webhook to trigger the event.



Step 5: Configure the 'Action' that will be taken when this event is triggered in IFTTT - lots of intriguing possibilities!


Step 6: Once you've added and configured the 'Action,' review the applet settings and click 'Finish' to save the Applet.


Step 7: Select 'Services' from the account dropdown - we will be looking up the incoming webhook URL for our account so we know where to send our alerts.


Step 8: Search for the 'Webhooks' service and select it to proceed.


Step 9: Select the 'Documentation' link from the 'Webhooks' services page.


Step 10: Copy the incoming Event trigger URL along with the key for your account. You will replace {event} in the URL with the one you configured above.


Step 11: Moving to your LogicMonitor account, navigate to 'Settings -> Integrations' and add a new 'Custom HTTP Delivery' integration using the event name from Step 4 and the URL (with key) from Step 10 :


Step 12: IFTTT allows you to include an (optional!) payload - which will show in the 'Activity Log' of the IFTTT Applet.


Step 13: Test Alert Delivery and you should see output similar to below in the IFTTT Activity Log.


Step 14: Save your integration, assign it to an Escalation Chain, and assign the Escalation Chain to an Alert Rule - and now we've configured a simple integration between LogicMonitor and IFTTT that could form the basis of a handful of interesting alert actions!

  • Love the idea of this!

    Might have to figure out a way to get this setup. Thanks for the write up Kerry!
