Cloud monitoring: alert notification from BTP

The BTP platform has a function called Alert Notification. This is a generic function that can be used to send alerts. It can be used to send alerts from applications, but also to send alerts from the HANA Cloud database.

SAP Focused Run can pick up these alert notifications form the BTP platform. From there Focused Run can be used to further relay the alert to notification teams.

Setup of the scenario

First you need to prepare your BTP environment to allow SAP Focused Run to collect data from the Alert Management application from your tenant and subaccount. This will give you the URL, client ID and client secret (be careful this is only shown once). To do this, follow the steps on the SAP Focused Run expert portal in this link.

For the setup of the scenario in SAP Focused Run, go to the FIORI tile for cloud setup:

Set up the OAUTH end point:

After the setup save the details and test the connection.

Now this end point can be used in the scenario setup.

In the Scenario configuration create the Cloud Service and select the SAP Cloud Platform Alert Notification Service:

In the monitoring details set the Endpoint you just created and filter on the events:

In the third tab Alerting you can set up the alerts if wanted.

Save and activate.

In the scenario modelling you can now use an on premise system and the Cloud Service you set up above to model a graphical scenario:
