# Integrations

The Fairwinds Insights Automation Rules integrate with various platforms such as Slack, GitHub, Jira and PagerDuty.

# Slack Notifications

If you have Slack set up in your Insights organization, you can use the sendSlackNotification function to send messages to specific channels or send messages via a webhook URL. The Slack message body can be customized to add things like mentions.

You can also utilize Slack incoming webhooks (opens new window) to send alerts.

The sendSlackNotification function takes three arguments:

  • channel or webhook URL - String - destination for the message
  • message (optional) - String - if not set, Insights will construct a default message from the Action Item
  • isWebhook (optional) - Boolean - set to true if the first parameter is a webhook URL

# Slack Notifications Examples

if (ActionItem.Severity >= CRITICAL_SEVERITY && ActionItem.IsNew) {
if (ActionItem.Severity >= CRITICAL_SEVERITY && ActionItem.IsNew) {
    sendSlackNotification("api-team", "@Jane, a new critical vulnerability! :scream:");
if (ActionItem.Severity >= CRITICAL_SEVERITY && ActionItem.IsNew) {
    "Uh oh! New vulnerability!",

# GitHub and Jira Tickets

Users can also create a Jira or GitHub issue from an Action Item using the createTicket function. Only one ticket will be created per Action Item.

The createTicket function takes three arguments:

  • integration - String - valid values are GitHub or Jira
  • project - String - GitHub repo name or Jira project ID
  • labels - Array - a list of labels to put on the ticket

# GitHub and Jira Examples

if (ActionItem.ResourceNamespace === "api") {
  createTicket("Jira", "API", ["bug"])
if (ActionItem.ResourceNamespace === "api") {
  createTicket("GitHub", "acme-co/api-server", ["bug"])

# PagerDuty Incidents

If you have PagerDuty set up in your Insights organization, you can use the createPagerDutyIncident function to create incidents.

The createPagerDutyIncident function takes two arguments:

  • from - String - email address of a valid user on the PagerDuty account
  • incident - Object - expects the following properties:
    • title - String - a summary of the incident
    • serviceID - String - the ID of the service the incident belongs to
    • urgency - String - the urgency of the incident. Valid values are high or low
    • bodyDetails (optional) - String - provides a detailed description of the incident
    • escalationPolicyID (optional) - String - assign the incident to an escalation policy instead of assigning directly to a user
    • assignmentIDs (optional) - Array - a list of user IDs (only one assignee is supported at this time) to assign to the incident. Cannot be provided if escalationPolicyID is already specified.

# PagerDuty Examples

if (ActionItem.Severity >= CRITICAL_SEVERITY && ActionItem.IsNew) {
  incident = {
		"title": ActionItem.Title,
		"serviceID": "PIIWGG1",
		"urgency": "high",
		"bodyDetails": ActionItem.Description,
		"assignmentIDs": ["P6GC8ZZ"]
	createPagerDutyIncident("[email protected]", incident)

# HTTP Requests

Users can send arbitrary HTTP requests using the sendHTTPRequest function. For example:

sendHTTPRequest("POST", "https://example.com/action-item", {
  headers: {
    "Content-Type": "application/json",
  body: JSON.stringify(ActionItem),
