Signl4

Signl4 describes themselves as

“Mobile Alerting and Incident Response. Automated Alerting. Anywhere Response”

It’s an easy to get started with, SaaS based solution for incident management.
It has good APIs and integrations as well as a generous free trial tier, which makes it great for Qlik Sense admins who wants to try a proper incident management tool.

What’s this?

Reload failure/abort events can be forwarded to Signl4, where they become incidents that are tracked, (maybe) escalated and eventually (hopefully!) closed.

Example here.

How it works

Signl4 exposes webhooks through which incidents can be created. The Butler.incidentTool.signl4.url is used to specify this webhook.

To use Butler with Signl4 you must first create a Signl4 team. Then note the secret key for that team:

More info about the webhooks can be found in Signl4’s developer docs.
