How marbot works

marbot integrates with Elastic Beanstalk environment notifications

1. Elastic Beanstalk environment notification

Elastic Beanstalk publishes environment notifications of different types. Create a subscription and Elastic Beanstalk will send marbot the events via HTTPS.

2. marbot

Once I receive a notification, marbot checks if the notification is a duplicate to reduce noise. marbot also enriches the notification with quick links to the AWS Management Console. Finally, marbot sends a Slack message with the notification to a single engineer of your team.

3. Your team

A member of your team now has to acknowledge the alert. marbot escalates unnoticed alerts to another team member or the whole crew if necessary. Once acknowledged, marbot waits until you have fixed the issue.
