Getting started - Build an integration
When thinking about deisgning an integration, remember that there are really three types of integrations with the xMatters platform:
- Data Source - Getting group, user, or device data in or out of xMatters.
- Example: None yet. Contribute one!
- Event Triggers - Initate events. These events do not necessarily need to notify people.
- Example: Chef, ServiceNow Inform with xMatters
- One way: Start here: https://support.xmatters.com/hc/en-us/articles/115001230823
- Closed-loop: Start here: https://support.xmatters.com/hc/en-us/articles/211526223
- Enrichment - Intended to be tacked on to an existing integration, these provide enrichment or enhancement functionality.
- Example: StatusPage
- Getting started: https://support.xmatters.com/hc/en-us/articles/214627943
Getting started - Post the repo
Once you've completed the integration, it's time to post the artifacts to github.
- Head over to the template for detailed instructions on how to get started.
- After all changes have been made, open an issue and we'll add it to the list. We might fork the repo to keep it "in house".
