How to get Phone, SMS and Slack alerts from CheckMk?

Service and integration

Make sure to add the Checkmk integration and copying the webhook.

Using Spike.sh script with Checkmk

Download the official checkmk-spike package here.

If you are using Checkmk docker, scroll below.

Step 1

Create a script called spike.sh at local/share/check_mk/notifications

Step 2

Paste the below script in the spike.sh file, using your prefered editor like nano or vim.

#!/bin/bash
# Notify via Spike.sh
# In order to use this script:
# - copy it into your site into ~/local/share/check_mk/notificaions
# - make sure it is executable
# - Modify the spike webhook url into SPIKE_URL=
# - Create a notification rule that makes use of the new plugin
curl --header "Content-Type: application/json" \
--request POST \
--data '{"OMD_ROOT" : "'"$OMD_ROOT"'","OMD_SITE" : "'"$OMD_SITE"'","NOTIFY_WHAT" : "'"$NOTIFY_WHAT"'","NOTIFY_CONTACTNAME" : "'"$NOTIFY_CONTACTNAME"'","NOTIFY_CONTACTEMAIL" : "'"$NOTIFY_CONTACTEMAIL"'","NOTIFY_CONTACTPAGER" : "'"$NOTIFY_CONTACTPAGER"'","NOTIFY_DATE" : "'"$NOTIFY_DATE"'","NOTIFY_LONGDATETIME" : "'"$NOTIFY_LONGDATETIME"'","NOTIFY_SHORTDATETIME" : "'"$NOTIFY_SHORTDATETIME"'","NOTIFY_HOSTNAME" : "'"$NOTIFY_HOSTNAME"'","NOTIFY_HOSTOUTPUT" : "'"$NOTIFY_HOSTOUTPUT"'","NOTIFY_HOSTSTATE" : "'"$NOTIFY_HOSTSTATE"'","NOTIFY_NOTIFICATIONTYPE" : "'"$NOTIFY_NOTIFICATIONTYPE"'","NOTIFY_PARAMETERS" : "'"$NOTIFY_PARAMETERS"'","NOTIFY_PARAMETER_1" : "'"$NOTIFY_PARAMETER_1"'","NOTIFY_PARAMETER_2" : "'"$NOTIFY_PARAMETER_2"'","NOTIFY_SERVICEDESC" : "'"$NOTIFY_SERVICEDESC"'","NOTIFY_SERVICEOUTPUT" : "'"$NOTIFY_SERVICEOUTPUT"'","NOTIFY_SERVICESTATE" : "'"$NOTIFY_SERVICESTATE"'"}' \
"$SPIKE_URL"

Step 3

Export the spike webhook in an environment variable as:

$ export SPIKE_URL="https://hooks.spike.sh/********************/push-events"

Step 4

Make the file executable.

$ sudo chmod +x spike.sh

Step 5

On the dashboard, create a notification rule and choose to Notify via Spike.sh option to enable this integration.

Using Spike.sh script with Checkmk Docker

In case if you are using Checkmk with Docker containers, follow these steps.

Step 1

Create a script called spike.sh in your server at $HOME

$ sudo nano $HOME/spike.sh

Step 2

Paste the below script in the spike.sh file.

#!/bin/bash
# Notify via Spike.sh
# In order to use this script:
# - copy it into your site into ~/local/share/check_mk/notificaions
# - make sure it is executable
# - Modify the spike webhook url into SPIKE_URL=
# - Create a notification rule that makes use of the new plugin
curl --header "Content-Type: application/json" \
--request POST \
--data '{"OMD_ROOT" : "'"$OMD_ROOT"'","OMD_SITE" : "'"$OMD_SITE"'","NOTIFY_WHAT" : "'"$NOTIFY_WHAT"'","NOTIFY_CONTACTNAME" : "'"$NOTIFY_CONTACTNAME"'","NOTIFY_CONTACTEMAIL" : "'"$NOTIFY_CONTACTEMAIL"'","NOTIFY_CONTACTPAGER" : "'"$NOTIFY_CONTACTPAGER"'","NOTIFY_DATE" : "'"$NOTIFY_DATE"'","NOTIFY_LONGDATETIME" : "'"$NOTIFY_LONGDATETIME"'","NOTIFY_SHORTDATETIME" : "'"$NOTIFY_SHORTDATETIME"'","NOTIFY_HOSTNAME" : "'"$NOTIFY_HOSTNAME"'","NOTIFY_HOSTOUTPUT" : "'"$NOTIFY_HOSTOUTPUT"'","NOTIFY_HOSTSTATE" : "'"$NOTIFY_HOSTSTATE"'","NOTIFY_NOTIFICATIONTYPE" : "'"$NOTIFY_NOTIFICATIONTYPE"'","NOTIFY_PARAMETERS" : "'"$NOTIFY_PARAMETERS"'","NOTIFY_PARAMETER_1" : "'"$NOTIFY_PARAMETER_1"'","NOTIFY_PARAMETER_2" : "'"$NOTIFY_PARAMETER_2"'","NOTIFY_SERVICEDESC" : "'"$NOTIFY_SERVICEDESC"'","NOTIFY_SERVICEOUTPUT" : "'"$NOTIFY_SERVICEOUTPUT"'","NOTIFY_SERVICESTATE" : "'"$NOTIFY_SERVICESTATE"'"}' \
"$SPIKE_URL"

Step 3

Export the spike webhook in an environment variable as:

$ export SPIKE_URL="https://hooks.spike.sh/********************/push-events"

Step 4

Do this step once the checkmk docker container is up.

Get the container id using docker ps

Copy the spike.sh file inside the docker container at the location /opt/omd/sites/cmk/local/share/check_mk/notifications# using the following command.

replace the <CONTAINER_ID> with the container id you got from docker ps.

$ docker cp spike.sh <CONTAINER_ID>:/opt/omd/sites/cmk/local/share/check_mk/notifications/spike.sh

Step 5

Now exec into the docker container.

$ docker exec -it <CONTAINER_ID> /bin/bash

Make the spike.sh executable.

$ cd /opt/omd/sites/cmk/local/share/check_mk/notifications

$ chmod +x spike.sh

Step 6

Export the spike webhook in an environment variable as:

$ export SPIKE_URL="https://hooks.spike.sh/********************/push-events"
