Integration for Soda Cloud alert notifications

You can use this integration to enable Soda Cloud to send alert notifications to an MS Teams channel to notify your team of warn and fail check results.

With such an integration, Soda Cloud enables users to select MS Teams as the destination for an alert notification of an individual check or checks that form a part of an agreement. See Edit checks in Soda Cloud and agreements.

Integration for Soda Cloud incidents

You can use this integration to notify your team when a new incident has been created in Soda Cloud. With such an integration, Soda Cloud displays an external link to the MS Teams channel in the Incident Details.

Soda Cloud sends all incident events to only one channel in MS Teams. As such, you must provide a separate integration link in the Channel URL field in the Define Scope tab. For example, https://teams.microsoft.com/mychannel. To obtain the channel link in MS Teams, right-click on the channel name in the overview sidebar.

Refer to Incidents for more details about using incidents in Soda Cloud.
