Escalate my downtime alerts to specific contacts
Configure your escalation settings to define your escalation policy. Pick an own roster to send the notifications during a breach and specify the exact time before escalation. You can escalate any downtime by updating your Notification Profile.
To configure your escalation settings,
- Log in to Site24x7 and go to Admin > Configurations Profiles > Notification Profile (+).
- Under Escalation Settings, select your preferred Contact Groups for Status Escalation.
- Provide the time period (in minutes) for Duration of Downtime for Escalation. This is set to 60 minutes by default. Save your changes.
Note: If you want to do this configuration to an already existing monitor, navigate to Home > Monitors > click on the desired monitor > hover on the hamburger icon beside the display name and click Edit > Configuration Profiles > click on the pencil icon beside Notification Profile. Update the escalation settings and save your changes.
You can also associate automations to be executed and invoke third party services on escalation. Once configured, whenever a downtime exceeds the specified escalation time period, an email will be triggered automatically to the specified contact groups. Learn how to modify your user alert group
