Citrix: Integrate Director Notifications into Custom Apps with Octoblu
XenApp and XenDesktop are equipped with Proactive Notifications and Alerting enabling an administrator to configure alert policies. Whenever a monitored parameter goes beyond the configured warning or critical thresholds, an alert/alarm is triggered. The notification can be seen on the Director console. In addition, you can subscribe via email when notifications are generated. Take this one step further by integrating the notifications into custom applications. This enables several use cases such as:
- Integrating the Director notification with an incident resolution platform and track the issue through resolution
- Sending a customized SMS to a group of people when an alert is generated
- Diming the light of the IT bay when a major alert is generated on your deployment
- Running a custom script on the controller when a specific kind of alert is generated, and resolving it automatically
In XenApp and XenDesktop 7.9, webhooks are integrated into alerting. Using webhooks, you can extend, customize and integrate the Director notifications into custom applications or with applications around the web.
One of the major uses of webhooks is integration with Octoblu, an IoT messaging and automation platform from Citrix. With OctoBlu, you can achieve all of the above use cases and even more.
