Integrate Spike with Google Cloud

Service and Integration

Make sure you have the service and integration already setup for Google Cloud. Follow the link below on instructions of how to create integration and service

Use the webhook on Google Cloud

We will create a webhook on Stackdriver to integrate directly with Spike. There is no limit to the number of Spike's webhooks you can add on Google Cloud

Updated Google Cloud integration docs on 8th May 2020.

Login to your Google Cloud console and find Monitoring on the sidebar

Select alerting in Monitoring sub menu
Click on edit notification channel
Select webhook
Paste the webhook and give an appropriate name

Enter the webhook you copied earlier. You can choose to have Basic Auth enabled. Every integration will have a unique username password combination.

Hit Test Connection and Save

Testing your webhook will create a test incident. Resolve the test incident immediately. This test incident will not have any metrics though.

If it fails, make sure you have pasted the right username and password. Refresh the page after a few tries. We are always available on the Live chat on your dashboard. You can also reach out to us on support@spike.sh

Create a new policy

Go to the monitoring section again and click on Create policy.

Add your conditions for alerts and select notification channel
Select the notification channel we just created

For your existing policies, you can simply edit and choose the same steps mentioned

Inside of Notifications, click on the dropdown menu and select Webhook with Basic Authentication.
