Circonus Integration

This guide goes through the steps necessary to integrate Backtrace with Circonus.

The steps in this process are:

  1. Generate API Key
  2. Set up Integration

Generate API Key and HTTPTrap Check


To setup integration for Circonus, you must generate an API Key. Follow the instructions at the Circonus API Page under "Personal Access Tokens"

Circonus API Key

You'll also need to set up a HTTPTrap in Circonus. For details on setting up an HTTPTrap, see Circonus HTTPTrap Docs. You will set Host to the URL of your Backtrace object store instance (yourorganizationname.sp.backtrace.io for Backtrace-hosted instances).

Once created, you will receive a URL. You'll use this URL, the Secret you specified, and the API key in the next step.

To set up the integration, first go to the Configuration page within the Web Console:

Next, select the project you want to add a integration for:
