After you add the webhook URL of a WeCom bot to an existing alert contact in a WeCom group, the alert contact can receive alert notifications.

Prerequisites

An alert contact is created. For more information, see Create an alert contact or alert contact group.

Step 1: Create a WeCom bot

This topic describes how to create a WeCom bot in the WeCom app.

  1. Start the WeCom app and go to the WeCom group to which the alert contact that you want to receive alert notifications belongs.
  2. Click the Group Settings icon in the upper-right corner.
  3. Click the Add icon next to Group Bots.
  4. Click Add a Bot.
  5. Click Create.
  6. Enter a bot name, for example, CloudMonitor alert notifications.
  7. Click Add.
  8. Click Copy to copy the webhook URL.

Step 2: Add the webhook URL of the WeCom bot to an alert contact

Add the webhook URL of the WeCom bot to an alert contact.

  1. Log on to the CloudMonitor console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Alerts > Alert Contacts.
  3. On the Alert Contacts tab, find the alert contact that you want to modify and click Edit in the Actions column.
  4. In the Set Alert Contact panel, enter the webhook URL of the WeCom bot.
  5. Confirm the parameter values and click OK.

Step 3: Create an alert contact group

Add the alert contact to an alert contact group.

When you configure the alert rule, you must select the alert contact group that you created. If the value of a resource metric reaches the specified alert threshold, alerts are triggered and CloudMonitor sends alert notifications to the WeCom group.
