Icinga2 notification to Matrix.org chat rooms

icinga2-matrix_notification

Sent Icinga2 notifications to Matrix.org or own Matrix homeserver chatroom

The scripts itself are just a bad clone from the original mail notifications, which are from https://github.com/sysadmama if I remember correctly. The "only" difference is -- that instead of creating a mail -- we use curl to submit the notification into a room.

To send notifications from Icinga2 into a room, the following conditions are required:

  • A matrix compatible server, e.g matrix-synapse or use https://matrix.org
  • An access token to get access to the Matrix server
  • A Matrix room ID
  • Access to the room (invite) as the Matrix user, which sends the notifications.

There exists several ways for creating a Matrix user, but an easy way is to create a new user (for example "monitoring" via login in Riot web); get the access token and invite the new Matrix user into the room, which may was created for the monitoring. A good approach is to have several rooms, for example devops, sysops, web, dba .... and use the apply rule to assign the correct room with the $notification_matrix_room_id$ .

The following configuration examples should work in most cases :-)

Just put the both scripts into the /etc/icinga2/scripts/ folder, make them 0755 executable and try it out.
