Notification Lists

What are notification lists?

Notification lists are a collection of one or more notification channels. A notification channel is a notification medium like email, slack, discord, etc.

For example if you wish to receive alerts via email and slack, You would

  • create a notification list
  • add email as a channel to it
  • add slack as a channel to it
  • attach this notification list to a monitor.

Once your monitor triggers any alert, It will send notifications to all the channels in the notification list. In this case it will send alerts via email and slack.

A default notification list has been automatically created for you when you signed up.

You can add multiple channels to a notification list and add multiple notification lists to a monitor.
