Notifications

With notifications, you can tailor how Canary by Pagos alerts you when your metrics change unexpectedly and trigger events. By default, notifications appear only in the service panel UI (web), but you can elect to receive them via email, on the mobile app, or delivered via webhooks.

Notifications List

The notification list provides you with an inbox-style way of browsing all your configured notifications. To access your notifications list:

  1. Open the Canary Service Panel
  2. Click Notifications in the navigation bar.

From this screen, you can add, edit, or delete notifications. To edit a notification, click its row in the list; this opens the side edit panel.

Configuring Notifications

To create a new notification, navigate to the notifications list, then click + Add and configure the following settings:

  • Source - Select a source for the notification from the drop-down menu of your triggers and those Canary has enabled for you
  • Type - This field auto-populates based on the selected Source; Canary system triggers are Advice notifications and user-configured triggers are either Trigger or Summary notifications.
  • Name - Give the notification a title; this appears in notification messages or webhook call backs
  • Description - Describe the notification; this provides you additional details in the notification messages or webhook call backs
  • Destination - Click the toggles to enable the communication method(s) you want Canary to send the notification by:
    • Web - Enable notifications in the Canary UI; by default all notifications are enabled for web
    • Mobile - Receive notifications in the mobile app
    • Email - Provide an email address to receive email notifications
    • Webhooks - Enter a URL endpoint to configure a webhook notification

You can enable and disable triggers at any time.
