What is an Alarm Plugin?

We highly recommed the use the HTTP Webhook in which case you have full control of the logic and target audience.

Alarm Plugins are responsible within Nodinite to push an alert to its target audience. Since our Partners and Customers all have their own processes and tools there is no way for a tool like Nodinite to support all these out of the box. The solution for Nodinite, to deal with all these complex environments, are to defer the logic to plugins (custom coded .NET DLL's). These DLL's may comes out of the box.

An Alarm Plugin is loaded by the Monitoring Service. Each time a Monitor View changes state an alert is triggered calling the included Alarm Plugins. For example an email Alarm Plugin will send and email every time the Monitor View changes state. All alerts can be customized either directly using a Stylesheet or using custom code in your own Webhook.

The following alarm plugins are available out of the box for use with Nodinite

  1. Email, default part of installation (uses the email address from Users)
  2. Email with options, requires configuration either global or specific for each Monitor View
  3. Event Log
  4. HTTP Webhook
