Correlate and enrich Catchpoint alerts with contextual data from other events using ServiceNow.
Modernize IT Service Management
Ensuring the right people are notified of an incident can be challenging in today’s complex environment. Managing different contact preferences, escalation procedures, and alerts from different monitoring solutions can result in a critical alert being missed. Consolidating notifications, contact details, routing, and escalations can help organizations manage incidents more effectively. With the Alert Webhook, Catchpoint alerts can be sent directly to ServiceNow to quickly resolve service incidents.
Basic Tool Information
ServiceNow provides companies a single platform to manage their services such as closing incidents, responding to alerts, managing customer requests, solving employee issues and addressing routine tasks. You can connect Catchpoint and ServiceNow to receive Catchpoint alerts directly in your ServiceNow centralized alerting system.

Catchpoint’s Alert Webhook allows Catchpoint to integrate with other tools by pushing data when a test triggers an alert. Any tool supporting Webhooks or providing a URL to POST data can be used. Alert Webhook templates can be customized to fit a tool’s format and content-type using macros. If a template needs modification, please contact Catchpoint Support.
We are happy to assist you in creating a template meeting your requirements. Below, you will find the integration guide on setting up and customizing templates. These guides are standard workflows created by Catchpoint focused on creating and confirming an API template to be consumed by this tool. Catchpoint does its best to ensure the relevance of these guides and will be happy to assist in implementing a guide as described.
