⚠️ This project is deprecated ⚠️

Alertmanager v0.24+ has Telegram support out of the box. Going forward, please simply use Alertmanager instead of this bot.
This project will be archived at the end of July 2022.

Until then you can ask questions in this GitHub Discussion.

Bot for Prometheus' Alertmanager

Docker Pulls Go Report Card

This is the Alertmanager bot for Prometheus that notifies you on alerts.
Just configure the Alertmanager to send Webhooks to the bot and that's it.

Additionally you can always send commands to get up-to-date information from the alertmanager.

Why?

Alertmanager already integrates a lot of different messengers as receivers for alerts.
I want to extend this basic functionality.

Previously the Alertmanager could only talk to you via a chat, but now you can talk back via commands.
You can ask about current ongoing alerts and silences.
In the future I plan to also support silencing via the chat, so you can silences after getting an alert from within the chat.
A lot of other things can be added!

Messengers

Right now it supports Telegram, but I'd like to add more in the future.

Commands

/start

Hey, Matthias! I will now keep you up to date!

/stop

Alright, Matthias! I won't talk to you again.

Ansible

If you prefer using configuration management systems (like Ansible) you might be interested in the following role: mbaran0v.alertmanager-bot

LISTEN_ADDR listen.addr 0.0.0.0:8080 Address that the bot listens for webhooks
STORE store The type of the store to use, choose from bolt (local), consul or etcd (distributed)
STORE_KEY_PREFIX storeKeyPrefix telegram/chats Key prefix for the store
ETCD_URL etcd.url localhost:2379 The URL that's used to connect to the ETCD store

TELEGRAM_ADMIN telegram.admin The Telegram user id for the admin (not the bot itself, you, the user). The bot will only reply to messages sent from an admin. All other messages are dropped and logged on the bot's console. Your user id you can get from @userinfobot.
TELEGRAM_TOKEN telegram.token Token you get from @botfather
TEMPLATE_PATHS template.paths /templates/default.tmpl Path to custom message templates

Authentication

Additional users may be allowed to command the bot by giving multiple instances of the --telegram.admin command line option or by specifying a newline-separated list of telegram user IDs in the TELEGRAM_ADMIN environment variable.

- TELEGRAM_ADMIN="**********\n************"
--telegram.admin=1 --telegram.admin=2

Alertmanager Configuration

Now you need to connect the Alertmanager to send alerts to the bot.
A webhook is used for that, so make sure your LISTEN_ADDR is reachable for the Alertmanager.

For example add this to your alertmanager.yml configuration:

receivers:
- name: 'alertmanager-bot'
  webhook_configs:
  - send_resolved: true
    url: 'http://alertmanager-bot:8080'

Development

Build the binary using make:

make

In case you have $GOPATH/bin in your $PATH you can now simply start the bot by running:

alertmanager-bot

Missing

Commands
  • /silence - show a specific silence
  • /silence_del - delete a silence by command
  • /silence_add - add a silence for a alert by command
More Messengers

At the moment I only implemented Telegram, because it's so freakin' easy to do.

Messengers considered to add in the future:

If one is missing for you just open an issue.
