Configure alerts

You can configure alerts to notify you when an event occurs. For example, you can create an alert to notify you when there is an authentication failure by a connector.

Integration Connectors supports the following two types of alert notifications:

  • Alerts in Cloud Monitoring
  • Alerts in Cloud Logging

Alerts in Cloud Monitoring

You can create and configure Cloud Monitoring alerts to notify you when an Integration Connectors resource exceeds or drops below a specified threshold. For example, you can create an alert to notify you when the total data processed by a connector exceeds a specified threshold value.

For more information about alerting in Cloud Monitoring, see Alerting overview.

Before you begin

  • Make sure that you have the Monitoring Editor (roles/monitoring.editor) IAM role granted on your Google Cloud project. For information about granting roles, see Manage access.
  • Learn about the general concepts of alerting policies, see Alerting overview.
  • Configure notification channels to receive alerts, see Create and manage notification channels.

    The alerts are sent to the essential contacts configured in your Google Cloud Project. For more information on adding essential contacts, see Managing contacts for notifications.

    Alerts in Cloud Logging

    You can create and configure log-based alerts to notify you whenever a specific message appears in your included logs. For example, you can create a log-based alert for messages that match a specific pattern.

    Create an alert

    You can create log-based alerts from the Logs Explorer page in the Google Cloud console or by using the Monitoring API. For detailed instructions, see the following sections:
