If you are using PagerDuty, you can forward alerts from Red Hat Advanced Cluster Security for Kubernetes to PagerDuty.

The following steps represent a high-level workflow for integrating Red Hat Advanced Cluster Security for Kubernetes with PagerDuty:

  1. Add a new API service in PagerDuty and get the integration key.

  2. Use the integration key to set up notifications in Red Hat Advanced Cluster Security for Kubernetes.

  3. Identify the policies you want to send notifications for, and update the notification settings for those policies.

  • Red Hat Advanced Cluster Security for Kubernetes sends notifications on an opt-in basis. To receive notifications, you must first assign a notifier to the policy.

  • Notifications are only sent once for a given alert. If you have assigned a notifier to a policy, you will not receive a notification unless a violation generates a new alert.

  • Red Hat Advanced Cluster Security for Kubernetes creates a new alert when:

    • A policy violation occurs for the first time in a deployment.

    • A runtime-phase policy violation occurs in a deployment after you resolved the previous runtime alert for a policy in that deployment.
