Using Alertmanager for notifications

To configure the built-in Alertmanager to send notifications, you need to open a TCP port for the Alertmanager API to be accessible from the outside.

To open a port for the Alertmanager API

  1. On the Infrastructure > Networks screen, click Edit and then Create traffic type.
  2. In the Create traffic type window, specify a custom name in the Name field and 9093 in the Port field. Then, click Create.

  3. Click Assign to networks next to the Custom traffic types section, and then add the created traffic type to your public network by selecting the corresponding check box.
  4. Click Save to apply the changes.

You can now access the Alertmanager API at http://<admin_panel_IP_address>:9093. For more information on configuring Alertmanager, refer to its documentation.
