Notifications List

Notifications List

For each notification, the list displays:

  • The type,
  • The notification description,
  • The event ids.

There are 4 types of notification available:

  • Email,
  • Slack,
  • Microsoft Teams,
  • Http WebHook.

Event IDs

The event IDs define what events are sent for each configuration:

EventId Description
Test started The test has been launched. Note that this event only logs that a test has been queued for startup, not that is successfully started.
Test ended The test has stopped. There can be a number of reasons for a test to stop, check our dedicated Test status page for more info.
Test error The test was unable to launch, usually because an on premise load generator is down. Check the test logs for more info.
Test passed The test has finished with no critical alert.
Test failed The test has finished but one of the following happened:
- A monitoring alert,
- An SLA triggered,
- In Enterprise Edition platforms only, the error rate was higher than octoperf.notifications.max-percent-errors.

  • Gave you this URL during the webhook creation,
  • The user that created the webhook is named Demo,
  • Has an #octoperf channel and Demo can post into it.

In OctoPerf it would look like this:
