Transports

Transports are located within LibreNMS/Alert/Transport/ and can be configured within the WebUI under Alerts -> Alert Transports.

Contacts will be gathered automatically and passed to the configured transports. By default the Contacts will be only gathered when the alert triggers and will ignore future changes in contacts for the incident. If you want contacts to be re-gathered before each dispatch, please set 'Updates to contact email addresses not honored' to Off in the WebUI.

The contacts will always include the SysContact defined in the Device's SNMP configuration and also every LibreNMS user that has at least read-permissions on the entity that is to be alerted.

At the moment LibreNMS only supports Port or Device permissions.

You can exclude the SysContact by toggling 'Issue alerts to sysContact'.

To include users that have Global-Read, Administrator or Normal-User permissions it is required to toggle the options:

API

API transports definitions are a bit more complex than the E-Mail configuration.

The URL can have the same placeholders as defined in the Template-Syntax.

If the Api Method is get, all placeholders will be URL-Encoded.

The API transport uses cURL to call the APIs, therefore you might need to install php curl to make it work.

Note: it is highly recommended to define your own Templates when you want to use the API transport. The default template might exceed URL-length for GET requests and therefore cause all sorts of errors.

Example:

Config Example
API Method get
API URL http://my.example.com/api

Boxcar

Copy your access token from the Boxcar app or from the Boxcar.io website and setup the transport.

Boxcar Docs

Example:

Config Example
Access Token i23f23mr23rwerw

Canopsis

Canopsis is a hypervision tool. LibreNMS can send alerts to Canopsis which are then converted to canopsis events.

Canopsis Docs

Example:

Config Example
Hostname www.xxx.yyy.zzz
Port Number 5672
User admin
Password my_password
Vhost canopsis

Cisco Spark

Cisco Spark. LibreNMS can send alerts to a Cisco Spark room. To make this possible you need to have a RoomID and a token.

For more information about Cisco Spark RoomID and token, take a look here :

Discord

The Discord transport will POST the alert message to your Discord Incoming WebHook. Simple html tags are stripped from the message.

The only required value is for url, without this no call to Discord will be made. The Options field supports the JSON/Form Params listed in the Discord Docs below.

Discord Docs

Example:

Config Example
Discord URL https://discordapp.com/api/webhooks/4515489001665127664/82-sf4385ysuhfn34u2fhfsdePGLrg8K7cP9wl553Fg6OlZuuxJGaa1d54fe
Options username=myname

Elasticsearch

You can have LibreNMS send alerts to an elasticsearch database. Each fault will be sent as a separate document.

The index pattern uses strftime() formatting.

Example:

Config Example
Host 127.0.0.1
Port 9200
Index Patter librenms-%Y.%m.%d

Gitlab

LibreNMS will create issues for warning and critical level alerts however only title and description are set. Uses Personal access tokens to authenticate with Gitlab and will store the token in cleartext.

Example:

Config Example
Host http://gitlab.host.tld
Project ID 1
Personal Access Token AbCdEf12345

HipChat

See the HipChat API Documentation for rooms/message for details on acceptable values.

You may notice that the link points at the "deprecated" v1 API. This is because the v2 API is still in beta.

Example:

Config Example
API URL https://api.hipchat.com/v1/rooms/message?auth_token=109jawregoaihj
Room ID 7654321
From Name LibreNMS
Options color = red
notify = 1
message_format = text

At present the following options are supported: color, notify and message_format.

Note: The default message format for HipChat messages is HTML. It is recommended that you specify the text message format to prevent unexpected results, such as HipChat attempting to interpret angled brackets (< and >).

IRC

The IRC transports only works together with the LibreNMS IRC-Bot. Configuration of the LibreNMS IRC-Bot is described here.

Example:

Config Example
IRC enabled

JIRA

You can have LibreNMS create issues on a Jira instance for critical and warning alerts. The Jira transport only sets summary and description fields. Therefore your Jira project must not have any other mandatory field for the provided issuetype. The config fields that need to set are Jira URL, Jira username, Jira password, Project key, and issue type. Currently http authentication is used to access Jira and Jira username and password will be stored as cleartext in the LibreNMS database.

Jira Issue Types

Example:

Config Example
URL https://myjira.mysite.com
Project Key JIRAPROJECTKEY
Issue Type Myissuetype
Jira Username myjirauser
Jira Password myjirapass

Mail

For all but the default contact, we support setting multiple email addresses separated by a comma. So you can set the devices sysContact, override the sysContact or have your users emails set like:

[email protected], [email protected]

The E-Mail transports uses the same email-configuration like the rest of LibreNMS. As a small reminder, here is it's configuration directives including defaults:

Example:

Config Example
Email [email protected]

Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams. LibreNMS can send alerts to Microsoft Teams Connector API which are then posted to a specific channel.

Example:

Config Example
WebHook URL https://outlook.office365.com/webhook/123456789

Nagios Compatible

The nagios transport will feed a FIFO at the defined location with the same format that nagios would. This allows you to use other alerting systems with LibreNMS, for example Flapjack.

Example:

Config Example
Nagios FIFO /path/to/my.fifo

OpsGenie

Using OpsGenie LibreNMS integration, LibreNMS forwards alerts to OpsGenie with detailed information. OpsGenie acts as a dispatcher for LibreNMS alerts, determines the right people to notify based on on-call schedules and notifies via email, text messages (SMS), phone calls and iOS & Android push notifications. Then escalates alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed.

Create a LibreNMS Integration from the integrations page once you signup. Then copy the API key from OpsGenie to LibreNMS.

If you want to automatically ack and close alerts, leverage Marid integration. More detail with screenshots is available in OpsGenie LibreNMS Integration page.

Example:

Config Example
WebHook URL https://url/path/to/webhook

osTicket

LibreNMS can send alerts to osTicket API which are then converted to osTicket tickets.

Example:

Config Example
API URL http://osticket.example.com/api/http.php/tickets.json
API Token 123456789

PagerDuty

LibreNMS can make use of PagerDuty, this is done by utilizing an API key and Integraton Key.

API Keys can be found under 'API Access' in the PagerDuty portal.

Integration Keys can be found under 'Integration' for the particular Service you have created in the PagerDuty portal.

Example:

Config Example
API Key randomsample

Telegram

Thank you to snis for these instructions.

  1. First you must create a telegram account and add BotFather to you list. To do this click on the following url: https://telegram.me/botfather

  2. Generate a new bot with the command "/newbot" BotFather is then asking for a username and a normal name. After that your bot is created and you get a HTTP token. (for more options for your bot type "/help")

  3. Add your bot to telegram with the following url: http://telegram.me/<botname> and send some text to the bot.

  4. The BotFather should have responded with a token, copy your token code and go to the following page in chrome: https://api.telegram.org/bot<tokencode>/getUpdates (this could take a while so continue to refresh until you see something similar to below)

  5. You see a json code with the message you sent to the bot. Copy the Chat id. In this example that is “-9787468” "message":{"message_id":7,"from":"id":656556,"first_name":"Joo","last_name":"Doo","username":"JohnDoo"},"chat":{"id":-9787468,"title":"Telegram Group"},"date":1435216924,"text":"Hi"}}]}

  6. Now create a new "Telegram transport" in LibreNMS (Global Settings -> Alerting Settings -> Telegram transport). Click on 'Add Telegram config' and put your chat id and token into the relevant box.
