OnPage’s AWS CloudWatch integration enables CloudWatch to trigger OnPage high-priority, distinctive Alert-Until-Read notifications when it detects anomalies or critical cloud activities.

OnPage notifications are automatically escalated to on-call team members and audit trails can be generated for post-event analysis. The integration minimizes the time to identify and respond to incidents occurring in AWS resources or applications.

Follow the steps below to quickly set up the integration:

“Very Reliable and Efficient Service”


OnPage is an easy and reliable service to use. At our company, OnPage quickly enabled us to set up alerts from our monitoring system (SolarWinds). Unlike text messaging, which is not very reliable and difficult to manage with team members in different countries, it was easy to have a global standard with OnPage. Also, there is more accountability now and we don’t have to hear excuses such as, “I did not get the message.” The OnPage audit report shows us if someone received an alert or not. We’ve also found OnPage’s alert escalation feature very useful.
