OpsGenie Destination

Configuring OpsGenie as an alert destination in your Panther Console


Destinations are integrations that receive alerts from rules, policies, system health notifications, and rule errors. Panther supports configuring OpsGenie as the destination where you will receive alerts.
The OpsGenie Destination requires an Opsgenie API key. When an alert is forwarded to an OpsGenie Destination, it creates an incident using the specified API key.
