What is an Alarm Plugin?
We highly recommend using the HTTP Webhook, as you have full control of the logic and target audience.
Alarm Plugins are responsible within Nodinite to alert its target audience. Since our Partners and Customers all have their 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, is to defer the logic to plugins (custom-coded .NET DLL's). These DLL's may come 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 may send an email every time the Monitor View changes its 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
- Email, default part of the installation (uses the email address from Users)
- Email with options, requires configuration either global or specific for each Monitor View
- Event Log
- HTTP Webhook
