GraphCDN has been sending email alerts whenever we saw an HTTP 5xx error for a couple of months now, however, those alerts were not configurable.
We just published a
new "Alerts" moduleas a beta release that allows you to configure when to send an alert based on certain criteria, as well as who to send those alerts to. At the moment alerts are limited to email, however, we will extend this system with other communication channels in the future.
You'll find the
Alertsas a new tab in your service configuration, and by default, we configured the same 3 alerts for HTTP/4xx, HTTP/5xx, and GraphQL errors that we have used in the past.
However, you can now delete those alerts and create your own set with the specific configuration that you and your team actually care about.
Each alert allows you to specify an interval as well as an error condition that needs to apply, configure a name and recipients (either from your existing GraphCDN team or a specific alerting email address you might already be using).
The alert emails themselves are quite simple. They include the service name and alert conditions you have configured, as well as the error message from the last error and a link to your service's dashboard.
And, to make sure you only get the alerts you care about, you can unsubscribe (or edit the alert) right from the email itself!
As always, we're looking for your feedback. What else would you like to see to make alerting more useful for you and your team? Which other notification channels do you care about? Let us know via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
